Vernon foodies, unite.

The second annual Dine Around Downtown kicked off Friday, and runs until Oct. 30. This event features nine local restaurants offering limited time three-course menus using local ingredients prepared by Okanagan chefs.

“This is the perfect time to explore the culinary scene in Downtown Vernon,” said Dudley Coulter with the Downtown Vernon Association. “All of the menus use locally sourced ingredients and will be available only until Oct. 30.

With the fall harvest in full swing, said Coulter, there’s no doubt Dine Around Downtown will again be a success.

“There’s some really inspiring dishes here, stuff you just don’t get at many restaurants,” he said.

Especially at the price.

For instance, The Kal is serving up house-made ricotta, potato & pesto perogies with chorizo, pickled onion and sour cream followed by pork cheeks or smoked cheddar lasagna, finished off with ice cream waffle tacos featuring their homemade ice cream and shells.

The price for all of that? Just $30.00.

If that doesn’t make your mouth water, there is plenty of other lunch and dinner menus available including Eatology, Eclectic Med, The Italian Kitchen, Ratio, Raku, The Sprouted Fig, Station BBQ and Triumph.
