Win a Year’s Worth of Downtown Dining
Downtown Cleveland Alliance is bringing back its popular “Dine-In” Sweepstakes – giving diners the chance to win the grand prize of Downtown dining for a year or other restaurant gift certificates. Diners will be entered to win by completing a short survey at the end of their meal.

For a full listing of participating restaurants, menus, tastings, classes and additional details, visit On my list that week: Metro Bar & Kitchen, D'Vine, and Zinc. I love D'Vine, and haven't tried Metro or Zinc yet. It's a great opportunity to try out that restaurant that you haven't quite made it to yet, or to go back to one of your downtown favorites.
