Sizzle Dining Returns to Southwest Florida

More than 30 restaurants across the region offer two-course ($29) and three-course ($39) specials during the three-week event.

Sizzle Dining started Thursday and runs through Sept. 29, offering dining deals at more than 30 restaurants in Lee and Collier counties. One dollar from each meal goes to the charity Blessings in a Backpack SWFL, which provide food on the weekends for local elementary school children who might otherwise go hungry. Restaurants can offer takeout, delivery, curbside and indoor/outdoor dining, as permissible by public health guidelines. Each participating restaurant offers a three-course prix fixe dinner menu for either $29 or $39, depending on each location. Some restaurants may also offer a two-course prix fixe lunch menu for $19 or $24 and a brunch menu for $24 or $29.
