If you've been waiting for a special occasion to explore the robust and diverse mix of downtown Culpeper restaurants, you now have one: Culpeper Renaissance's 8th Annual Restaurant Week.
Started by local restaurateurs in 2009, the event encourages diners to break out of typical work-week patterns and share a meal with family and friends. With specially priced menu options -- $30 per person includes a 3-course dinner of appetizer, entrée, and dessert -- it's a great excuse to revisit old favorites or try something new. Call your favorite fine dining establishment or perhaps a new downtown restaurant for hours of operation and to make your reservation. And start planning now, this is one culinary trip you won't want to miss.
