The second Dine about Town of 2012 kicked off on Friday with a smattering of restaurants all around the city serving a two-course lunch for $17.95 or a three-course dinner for $34.95.
I got started at Marlowe where the rustic wooden chairs were full of eager lunchers, almost all of whom were gobbling down the Marlowe Burger. A juicy patty of lamb and beef, this burger is a favorite at this bistro tucked across from the Cal Train and the ballpark. Though the towering caramelized onion and cheddar cheese monstrosity was tempting, I opted for a hearty mushroom soup and a deviled egg sandwich (both also regular menu items available for a Dine About Town deal). I'll admit I cheated a little and ordered some crispy Brussels Sprout Chips on the side.
