Indulge Nelson a delight for your tastebuds

You have until the end of the month to sample fixed-price menus from 13 local eateries

You still have a couple of weeks to try Indulge Nelson, a celebration of local cuisine.

Sunday to Thursday throughout the month, 13 restaurants are offering a multiple course menu at a fixed price ($25 to $35).

“We have so many businesses in Nelson who are excited to take part in innovative and fun events that offer something really special to the community,” said Star advertising executive Marc-Andre Hamelin.

“With all the talented chefs, kitchen staff, service staff, and bartenders that we see all year round, Indulge Nelson gives us an opportunity to look at all their menus together. Each restaurant has a different style and it’s fun to see what they all come up with.”

This is the fourth year that the Star has organized Indulge Nelson, making a total of 46 menus since its inception.

The participating restaurants this year are Busaba Thai Cafe, The Falls Music Lounge, Louie’s Steakhouse and Lounge, Uptown Sports Bar, Itza Ristorante and Pizzeria, Sage Tapas and Wine Bar, Hume Hotel, Kootenay Smokehouse Wood Fired Pizza, Tandoori Indian Grill, Rel•ish, Yum Son, Pitchfork, and La Bomba Dell’Amore.

Steve Kirby, owner/chef at La Bomba, said he was eager to join Indulge Nelson for the first time as his restaurant recently changed names and menus. Previously it was Max and Irma’s.

“Mainly because of the new business, we felt like we could use the exposure. It’s been quite well received, almost better than I expected.”

Kirby said in creating his menu, he wanted to use some ingredients, like eggplant, that he felt were under-appreciated.

With each menu, you can win up to $575 in prizes from Nelson businesses. First prize is a $25 gift certificate from each restaurant. Second is a $150 gift certificate for Culinary Conspiracy brand spices, and third is a $100 gift certificate from Le Grand Fromage cheese shop. Bring your receipt to Culinary Conspiracy or Le Grand Fromage and enter to win.
