Progressive Dinner Press Release

The Franklin Downtown Partnership would like to invite you out to dinner. Instead of choosing just one restaurant, why not go to four different eateries? You can by joining us for the inaugural Progressive Dinner on Sunday, September 27, in downtown Franklin.

Your culinary exploration will begin with appetizers at one restaurant, soup at another, an entrĂ©e at a third, and then dessert. You can choose from two different flights, with each flight featuring four downtown restaurants. Flights will be staggered to begin every half hour starting at 5:30 p.m. The evening will end on a sweet note with dessert at The Black Box while you’re entertained by Franklin School for the Performing Arts students.

Participating restaurants are Artistry Kitchen, Bamboo House, Chinese Mirch, Hang Tai, Maguro House, Making Whoopie, The Cake Bar, and The Rome Restaurant.

“We created the Progressive Dinner to remind the community that our businesses are open during the road construction project. What better way than to have people walking through downtown, enjoying local restaurants and entertainment with friends?” says event organizer Jane Curran, owner of Jane’s Frames.

Tickets are $50 per person, including tips and taxes. Beverages are not included. Choose your flight when you purchase tickets, which are on sale now through September 15 at Jane’s Frames, The Franklin Downtown Partnership office, and Emma’s Quilt Cupboard. Cash or check only.

Full menu and flight details will be available when you purchase tickets, and on the Downtown Partnership’s website,, and Facebook page.

Thank you to NHS Print, Pour Richard’s Wine & Spirits, Simon’s Furniture and The Mac Deli for sponsoring this event. Sponsorships are still available. Please contact FDP event co-chairperson Jane Curran at for information or with questions.
