Great Plates & Great Tastes in Fort Collins

with one comment

Fort Collins is known for its wide variety in selections of restaurants and tasty places to eat around town, and the Downtown Business Association and member businesses have teamed up to bring “Great Plates” 2012 to Old Town for the fifth year in a row.

This tradition of eating will continue this year with 30 downtown restaurants that are set to offer incredible dining specials for a full two weeks! Restaurant quality, authenticity, and diversity can be found throughout this list of restaurants that are sure to make your stomachs – and your wallets – happy.

Dinner specials will run at $25.00 or less at each location that are set to show off the speciality cuisine of their restaurant. New to this years line up, is the addition of Breakfast and Lunch specials! Snooze an AM Eatery, Mugs Coffee, and Silver Grill Cafe have all created special menu offers that only cost $2.50.

The Downtown Business Association has worked together with supporting restaurants to create these specials that support the Food Bank for Larimer County. Restaurants of “Great Plates” will provide opportunities for you to donate and support the Food Bank. Last years earnings were over $14,000 to help feed the hungry in the Fort Collins community!

Check out the full list of participating restaurants at Downtown Fort Collins website for full menu specials and updates! Or pick up an issue of the Fort Collins Coloradoan on March 1, 2012 for a program of the two week deals!

  1. Each day, the Food Bank is providing food to approximately 500-600 people in our two Food Share pantries in Larimer County. One out of every ten Larimer County residents accessed food at our pantries in 2011. Great Plate restaurants are important partners in our community’s fight against hunger…we hope you join in by choosing a Great Plate so others can eat!
