Dining and Donations

By Erin

Now that the sun is setting earlier, it only makes sense to have dinner earlier. In that spirit, Ristorante Tosca has unveiled a new "Dine at Dusk" menu.

Patrons of the downtown restaurant can enjoy a $32, three-course meal from 5:30 to 7 p.m. every night of the week. Tosca will donate 10 percent of those early bird sales to a different charity each month; November's proceeds will benefit Food and Friends, which prepares and delivers meals to people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses.

The special menu offers the option of appetizer or pasta, followed by a main course and dessert. Best of all, more than half of the dishes from the regular dinner menu are included. Tosca's close proximity to several local theaters and the MCI Center makes it a great choice for pre-theater, concert and game dining.

In other news regarding food and altruism, McCormick and Schmick's restaurants across the country will again offer a free entree to all U.S. military veterans this Sunday, Nov. 6, in honor of Veteran's Day.

Are you sure its 3 course for $32? Their website seems to indicate its another $9 for dessert, and that perhaps its $32 for the first two courses. Seems like a good deal either way.

I have spoken with Ristorante Tosca and the menu includes dessert in the three course special for $32. The restaurant's usual dessert menu is listed on the page immediately beneath the "Dine at Dusk" menu, so it can look as if there is a surcharge. Diners have the option of selecting any dessert item as part of the meal.

I think Heritage in Dupont and Mimis are also doing something on Tuesday night where part of the proceeds from the night go to quake victims in South Asia...
