One of my favorite things to do in Columbus is explore all of the different local eateries, which is why Dine Originals Week is one of my favorite events. This fall’s DOW is starts this coming Monday, Nov. 12 and goes through Sunday, Nov. 18.

Not familiar with DOW? This event is a week where the nearly 50 member restaurants of Dine Originals Columbus offer special menus for lunch and/or dinner at a fixed price – either $10, $20 or $30. It’s an excellent deal and a great time to get out and try a new restaurant!

This time around, I’m looking forward to trying out the Pine Nut Crusted Grouper at La Scala (though the Coffee Rubbed 8 oz. N.Y. Strip at G. Michael’s looks fabulous too…). Check out the menus for yourself here, and then tell us what restaurant you’re looking forward to trying in the comments because…

We have a giveaway!

We’ll randomly select one commenter to receive a $50 restaurant gift certificate courtesy of Dine Originals Columbus. The certificate can be used at any of their member restaurants. You have until 11 p.m. tonight to post and we’ll announce the winner at noon tomorrow.

Happy eating!
