The line-up includes: Nervo, Quintino and more. Read more on the Life in Color website and enter the giveaway below!

Downtown Albany restaurant week starts Wednesday

Starting Wednesday April 2nd, 17 downtown Albany restaurants are participating in restaurant week. Each one of these establishments is offering a three course meal for a set price of $20.14 per person.

Here’s a PDF of all the menus of the participating restaurants. It’s a great excuse to try a new restaurant with some friends or visit an old standby and try something new. I’ll definitely be checking out as many as I can this week.
