Road to Salivation - Restaurant Week

2009 is off to a culinary bang! The 2009 Restaurant week is just around the corner. January 22nd - 31st you can dine at a dozen downtown locations for just $10.09 at lunch and $20.09 for dinner. The menues are typically similar the restaurants normal cuisine, but often the chefs take a little extra liberty with specializing items or trying something new.

From the 2008 visitfred website:

"food enthusiasts will be able to feast on three-course prix fixe meals for a fraction of the regular price. ... Several of the city's finest restaurants will be preparing special menus to showcase their house specialties during Fredericksburg Restaurant Week.

Fredericksburg's 40-block historic district features a variety of one-of-a-kind restaurants, where you'll often find the owner/chef in the kitchen preparing your meal. The Road to Salivation is the ideal time to taste-test the tempting delights found on menus throughout the city."

The 2009 writeup sounds delicious
Delight in sheer gastronomical bliss as you sample some of Fredericksburg’s best dishes. Slow braised beef short ribs with a grapefruit and fennel slaw and fingerling potatoes. Sauté of jumbo shrimp over lobster-enriched fried polenta.
Mahi filet with herbed risotto. Belgian chocolate Profiterole with Dulce de
Leche ice cream. In Fredericksburg, the flavor is as rich as the area’s history.
