This year marks the 10th annual Downtown Dining Week and deVine Wines is proud to donate a 50 bottle mini wine cellar to one lucky patron. Downtown Dining Week is presented by the Downtown Business Association to showcase many of the Edmonton’s finest restaurants in the heart of our city. This year’s event runs for ten days, from March 15-24, inclusive.

Diners will have a choice of 29 participating restaurants to choose from. Restaurants will offer special pricing on a two course lunch for $15 and/or a three course dinner for either $25 or $50. For a complete listing of participating restaurants and their menus, please follow this link –

Dining Week patrons can enter to win gift certificates to participating restaurants. One lucky patron will win the “10th Anniversary Grand Prize” – 50 bottles of wine donated by deVine Wines and a 35-bottle Whirlpool Wine Cooler. The 50 bottle wine cellar has a retail value of over $1,500! For a complete listing of the cellar contents, please click here..

Contest entries and rules will be available at all participating restaurants, four of which are deVine Wines partners. I can personally vouch for the Hardware Grill’s “Soup of Yesterday” and their “Open Face Alberta Lamb Burger” – check out their menu here..

Seafood lovers should pay a visit to Sabor Divino. Nobody in Edmonton handles seafood with the touch that Chef Lino Oliviera does. I love his “Piri Piri Prawns” and “Broiled Bacalhau”, their menu is here..

The Marc offers one of the best valued lunch menus found anywhere in Edmonton. If this doesn’t tempt you, then order the “Croque Madame” off the regular menu. I substitute the salad for an order of the best French Fries in Edmonton, perfect for dipping into the egg yolk that sits atop the slices of duck breast. Truly a TDF experience! The Marc is also offering a $25 Dining Week dinner special. Check out their menu

Finally, our neighbor and partner down the street, the Blue Plate Diner, is offering “Pheasant Legs – Two Ways” that is intriguing the heck out of me. Check out their menu here..

So bring your appetite and dinner companions to check out the great lineup of restaurants who want to showcase the BEST of what Downtown has to offer. Reservations are highly recommended. I’ll join you in Downtown Dining Week, even if I can’t win that 50 bottle wine cellar!

Bon Appetite!
