Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Sizzle Dining (restaurant week) is a 3-week long, annual, community-driven event that celebrates the culinary landscape in both Lee and Collier counties by offering 3-course dinners and 2-course lunches at a discounted, set price.
Over 20,000 Sizzle meals were sold last year even after losing the last few days because of the hurricane.
Held every September, this year they broke their previous record of 69 restaurants participating with 95 of the best restaurants from Cape Coral & Sanibel down to Marco Island and everywhere tasty in between!
This year from Sept. 7 through Sept. 27, each of the participating restaurants will offer a 3-course prix fixe dinner menu for just $29, or $39 or $49, and some restaurants will also offer a 2-course lunch for only $19 or $29.
Showing support has never been so delicious!! For every Sizzle Dining meal purchased during the three-week event, each participating restaurant will donate $1 directly to Blessings in a Backpack of Southwest Florida, a local 501c3 charity that feeds local food-insecure elementary students every weekend during the school year. #DineWithPurpose

Our growing food scene has a lot to celebrate, and this event encourages people to leave their comfort zones and check out new-to-them restaurants. Sizzle Dining brings people together to relax, converse, and enjoy their dining experience, at an affordable price. But did you know that it also helps our community during the slowest month of the year?

Here’s how …
1. Sizzle Dining promotes local businesses and boosts our economy by over $2 million!
2. The restaurants are busier, so the servers & staff make more tips and get more hours!
3. With the increase in diners going out, the local vendors, farmers, and food purveyors sell more!
4. It attracts tourists and visitors to the area, generating additional revenue for local businesses!
5. It fosters a sense of community pride and identity, as we come together to celebrate and support our local restaurants during the slowest month of the year!
6. The event stimulates job growth within the restaurant industry, creating employment opportunities that have a positive impact on our community.
7. It encourages residents to explore and try new restaurants in their community which can lead to long-term customer loyalty and not to mention happy bellies!
8. The Sizzle Dining event serves as a platform for charitable initiatives, such as donating a portion of the proceeds of each meal sold, to a local non-profit.
