Door to Door Dining @ Downtown Findlay
Aug 8 @ 5:00 pm
A progressive dinner featuring some of downtown Findlay’s best-loved restaurants will inspire a nice night on the town for diners that will, in turn, help promote the growth and expansion of local commerce. The Findlay-Hancock Chamber of Commerce’s “Door to Door Dining” event will feature several downtown restaurants, each serving a different course of the meal. Diners can choose from two different tours and two different times, creating essentially four separate tours. The event will be held Aug. 8, with seatings at either 5 or 7 p.m. Each tour will last about an hour. Tickets are $50 each, and only 75 tickets for each dinner hour will be sold. Alcohol is not included in the ticket price. Chamber member services coordinator Carla Benjamin said the chamber fundraiser will provide support for programming aimed at helping chamber members grow their business. She said the tour was designed to coincide with the construction taking place downtown, to help drum up business at restaurants that may be seeing a decline in their usual dinner volume. Menus include the celebration tour and the anniversary tour: Celebration Tour This tour begins with an appetizer at DiVine Wine, consisting of various meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables. The soup and salad course, served at the Greek Garden, features choice of lemon chicken and rice soup or a Greek salad. The entrée, catered by Bistro on Main, will be served at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts. It includes braised beef short ribs with Parmesan polenta, sautéed greens, roasted wild mushrooms and a red wine bordelaise. After the entrée, diners can stop by Coffee Amici for coffee or tea of their choice with a pastry provided by Main Street Deli, or visit The Bourbon Affair for a choice of pastry from The Baker’s Café. Anniversary Tour The anniversary tour begins with an appetizer at Findlay Tavern at the Inn, featuring roasted St. Lewis back riblets brushed with sweet duck sauce, garnished with Brussels sprout slaw Thai vinaigrette. The soup or salad course at Legend’s Steakhouse is a choice of zuppa touscana soup or a fresh garden salad. The entrée at The Gathering will be the house favorite cavatappi pasta, smoked gouda, peeled diced tomatoes, hickory-smoked bacon, rosemary cream and chargrilled chicken breast. Visit Coffee Amici for coffee or tea and a pastry from Main Street Deli, or visit Alexandria’s for various pastry options from The Baker’s Café. The chamber points out tickets must be presented at each location along the tour. Tickets are on sale through Aug. 2 at the Findlay-Hancock County Chamber of Commerce, 123 E. Main Cross St., or the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts Box Office, 200 W. Main Cross St. For more information, visit FindlayHancockChamber.com or call Benjamin at 419-422-3313.
