What's the Dish?

Your Chowder hounds have sniffed out the best culinary events in town. Check back every Friday for your weekly prix fixe of freebies, dinner deals, wine tastings, and more.

Patrón Promotion
Feb. 27, 9-11 p.m.
Brasserie Jo

Tonight there’s a complimentary Patrón tequila tasting and free Alsacian style pizza at the bar at Brasserie Jo. Mixing French, Mexican, and Italian sounds like a messy night to us, but we’re game!

Lent Menu
Every Friday through April 10, 5-10 p.m. (except during Restaurant Week on Fri., March 20 or Fri., March 27)
Turner Fisheries

There’ll be no Grill 23 or KO Prime for you on Fridays, my friend. Even though you may have to lay off the meat during Lent, you can still have a great night out. Turner Fisheries is offering a prix-fixe menu of fish dishes, including items like Applewood smoked tomato bisque, pan-seared black sole with lobster reduction, and chocolate-dipped macaroon lollipops.

Fleming’s Memorable Meal
Now through March 31, Mon.-Wed., 5-10 p.m.; Thurs.-Sat., 5-11 p.m.; Sun., 4-9 p.m.
Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

But if nothing can keep you away from a good steak, sign up for a memorable meal at Fleming’s. For only $89 per couple, you and a date can enjoy three courses including salad, two filet mignons with shrimp scampi served with potatoes and sugar snap peas, and chocolate mousse with hazelnut bark for dessert. Not only that, but Fleming’s will also provide you with a sweet ride in their Mercedes Crossover courtesy car. They’ll pick you up and bring you to the restaurant, and afterward, they’ll drive you back to your hotel or your home, or wherever your evening takes you.
Call for reservations.
