Dine Out Nelson is a celebration of our restaurants aimed to support our restauranteurs and business owners and raise funds for the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy.

“When I was living in Vancouver, Dine Out Vancouver was like Christmas,” said {vurb} editor Megan Cole. “I love to try new food and new restaurants, but it went beyond food to supporting the community.”

Running from May 7 to 9, restaurants all over Nelson will be offering a unique prix fixe (fixed price) menu ranging from $15 to $45.

“It has been so amazing to see all the restaurants who were excited to participate in Dine Out,” said Cole.

18 restaurants are participating including: Main Street Diner, Ric’s Lounge and Grill, Baba’s Indian Cuisine, Bibo, Itza Ristorante and Pizzeria, King’s Family Restaurant, Dominion Cafe, Jackson’s Hole, Kurama Sushi, Sages Tapa and Wine Bar, Finley’s Irish Bar and Grill, Louie’s Steakhouse and Lounge, Uptown Sportsbar, Epic Sushi/Funky Monkey Burger Bar, Relish, Nelson Underground and Outer Clove.

“There really is something for everyone,” said Cole. “It’s a great opportunity to eat at restaurants you wouldn’t ordinarily go to or maybe you want to go to an old favourite and have something you missed.”

Ten per cent of the proceeds raised by Dine Out Nelson will go to the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy.

Make your reservations today to avoid missing out.
