Dine Around and win

Dine Around The Comox Valley is back for its sixth season

The popular Dine Around The Comox Valley is back for its sixth season and runs from Thursday, Feb. 19 to Sunday, March 15. Participating restaurants will showcase a range of delicious dishes featuring food from local farms, oceans and exotic international locations.

Dine Around The Comox Valley features a three-course, prix fixe meal, each available for $17, $27 or $37 per person at 19 participating Dine Around restaurants.

“Dine Around represents a lot of hard work, creativity and preparation on behalf of the restaurants,” said Edd Moyes, culinary events committee member and owner of the Blackfin Pub in Comox.

“With the combination of exciting, new menu items and reasonable prices for three-course meals, Dine Around is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.”

Dine Around has established itself as one of Canada’s premier regional culinary events. A diverse range of restaurants, each with excellent chefs, is bolstered by an array of local aquaculture and agriculture food producers, award-winning wineries and new craft breweries.

One of the newcomers to Dine Around, the White Whale Restaurant and Oyster Bar, plans to showcase the best of both local food producers and craft beer.

“Our Dine Around menu will change weekly to highlight the variety of local food producers,” said Max Oudendag of the White Whale. “One constant throughout Dine Around will be our fresh oyster sampler from three local oyster farms. For those looking to pair craft beer, we’re offering pairing upgrades that will include the latest brews from both Gladstone Brewing Co. in Courtenay and the Cumberland Brewing Company.”

In addition to the White Whale, four other restaurants are new to Dine Around and all bring international flavours to the plates of food aficionados. The Bamboo Inn and Spice Hut Indian Cuisine in Comox and Tita’s Mexican Restaurant and Manvirro’s Indian Grill in Courtenay, all bring delicious new offerings to the Dine Around lineup this season.

A new Dine Around passport will be provided to all restaurant-goers this year. Eat a Dine Around meal at one of the participating restaurants and get your passport “stamped” beside the restaurant name. Receive four stamps or more and submit your passport for a chance to win ‘Dining Out for a Year’ in the Comox Valley.

Dine Around The Comox Valley is supported by  The Comox Valley Record, Gordon Food Service, the Eagle 97.3FM, and Comox Valley Economic Development and Tourism.
