Tasty 3 course, $30 menus are less than a week away with the arrival of Northside Nights Restaurant Week! It's one of our staff's favorite times of the year because you can sample so many things from great restaurants on the north side of Indianapolis, including some in Hamilton County. Over 35 restaurants are participating and they each have outstanding menus.

Never tried dining during Northside Nights? The concept is simple: participating restaurants offer a price fixe menu of 3 courses for $30, all you do is make a reservation and show up to feast! Restaurants offer widely varying menus that each showcase cuisine they are known for. Some restaurants even offer lunch, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options too. New menus are being added daily, so check back often for updates.

Some Hamilton County favorites are on the list of participants this year including Eddie Merlot's, Harry & Izzy's, Sullivan's Steakhouse, Peterson's, Season's 52, Shiraz, Sahm's, and Nickel Plate. Last year I was able to make it to Sahm's Restaurant to sample their offerings and it was delicious! It was a great way to try new items on their menu and made for a great excuse to go out with friends as well.  Best of all?  It was budget friendly! 

This year Northside Nights also has other offerings to extend your night out beyond dining. One of the best deals is for tickets at the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts- only $30 for tickets to Leipzig Quartet (3/15), Music of ABBA presented by the ISO (3/17), or Barbara Cook & Michael Feinstein (3/23)! There is also a daily giveaway where you can win certificates to participating Northside Nights restaurants. Do not miss Northside Nights from March 11-24, it's going to be the best and tastiest one yet!
