Amelia Islander

Eat Up Downtown

Aug 19, 2013 02:00AM

We love Amelia Island, our beautiful and intimate island paradise. But now and then we have to go into the River City, that is, Jacksonville, FL. We call it ‘going overseas’ because it’s not very often that we drive over the bridge and head out to the beautiful metropolis of what locals call “Jax.” It’s usually for a special occasion, a concert, a particular movie, a contra dance, or to visit some friends. If you need to go into the big city, I suggest you go this week because Downtown Jacksonville is promoting their local restaurants with an event called Eat Up Downtown.

Eat Up as Downtown’s finest restaurants collaborate to bring patrons special three-course menus for $15, $25, or $35. This dining promotion will have you trying new restaurants or visiting old favorites at unbeatable prices. From casual cafés to fine-dining establishments, this yearly event will offer something for every palate. There are no coupons to clip or tickets to buy, just simply make reservations with the restaurant of your choice.
