Dining enthusiasts will be encouraged to celebrate the authenticity, quality and diversity found only in Downtown Fort Collins, at Great Plates of Downtown 2015.

Over thirty (30+) downtown restaurants will offer amazing evening dining specials from March 1-14, 2015! Each restaurant will be offering their own unique dinner specials for $25.00 or breakfast specials for $2.50 to show off their specialties and favorite ingredients. It could be dinner for four or it could be a gourmet treat for one, view our menu to learn more!
