Partnership Progressive Dinner to be Sept. 27

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 entrée 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. 

“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.

"The Rome Flight" includes Vegetable Spring Rolls at Hang Tai, Tofu Vegetable Soup at Bamboo House, Chicken Parmesan with Penne at The Rome, and a Chocolate Whoopie Pie from Making Whoopie.

"The Artistry Kitchen Flight" includes an Assorted Sushi Plate at Maguro House, Manchow Vegetable Soup at Chinese Mirch, Butternut Squash Flatbread with Arugula at Artistry Kitchen, and a Sticky Toffee Cupcake from The Cake Bar. 

Gluten Free option for "The Artistry Flight" includes an Assorted Sushi Plate at Maguro House, Manchow Vegetable Soup with Rice Noodles at Chinese Mirch, a Fall Cassoulet: Ragout of White Beans & Root Vegetables at Artistry Kitchen, and a Gluten Free Chocolate Whoopie Pie from Making Whoopie.

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 22 online at the Partnership’s Progressive Dinner page
