SANTA MARIA VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE LAUNCHES SPRING “DINEOUT WEEKS” TO COMPLEMENT STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL

“DineOut: Santa Maria Style”
Offers Special Reduced Price Menus at
Participating Santa Maria Valley Restaurants
From April 12 through April 25

Santa Maria, CA—Locals and visitors alike are invited to savor and save as eight participating restaurants in the Santa Maria Valley offer special reduced price menus from April 12 through April 25 under the banner of “DineOut: Santa Maria Style.”

The fixed menu prices start at $10.10, and continue with the “2010” theme at $20.10, $30.10 and $40.10, depending on the restaurant and meal (see below for full menus listing).

“The event dates were chosen to coincide with an established culinary event, the Santa Maria Valley Strawberry Festival, in order to encourage locals and visitors to experience a taste of the Santa Maria Valley,” said Gina Keough, manager of the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor & Convention Bureau, which is coordinating the promotion.

The participating restaurants are The Hitching Post in Casmalia, Trattoria Uliveto, Far Western Tavern, Garden Room Restaurant at the Historic Santa Maria Inn, Vintner’s Bar & Grill at the Radisson Hotel Santa Maria, Portabella at the Holiday Inn and Suites, Quizno’s on South Bradley Road and Adelina’s Bistro at the Monarch Club at Trilogy Central Coast.

For example, the Historic Santa Maria Inn is offering a Grilled Salmon Filet atop grilled basil polenta for $20.10, which includes choice of soup or salad, tomato bruschetta and a dessert featuring vanilla ice cream, seasonal berries served in a caramel basket. Prices do not include tax or tip.

Diners are encouraged to make reservations in advance, and to mention the “DineOut: Santa Maria Style” promotion when dining or making a reservation as regular menu items will also be available.

Says Keough, “’DineOut: Santa Maria Style’ is a great way for people to affordably experience the variety of our local flavors.”
