Cheap lunch at A16? Sign me up.

Here is my hint of the week. You’re all probably totally bogged down with holiday shopping, cooking and planning (and traveling!) but this is one of those early bird = worms type of situations that it would be a shame to miss out on. The seventh annual SF Dine About Town is on—January 15-31st. For those unfamiliar with the Dine Around concept, let me explain: participating restaurants offer special menus (for lunch, dinner or both) throughout that period for rock-bottom prices—a multi-course lunch for $21.95, dinner for $31.95.

These are notable restaurant, too—Bacar, A16, Poleng Lounge, Chez Papa, Farina, Sens …well, you get the picture. A lot of great restaurants serving you a lot of great food for a very low price. Of course, the favored reservations go first. … So that’s why I’m telling you about it right now, so you can go to the website immediately and make your reservation, then forget about it until some cold, dark day in January when you need a post-holiday pick me up. Go reserve now!
