Dine the Couve: Vancouver, Washington Restaurants Offer 3 for $23 in October

It's Dine the Couve Month all of October. And we'll be out sampling the culinary goodness of Vancouver (The Couve) Washington for two years now during this event.

Vancouver restaurants and drink purveyors collaborate on Dine the Couve to put together affordable menus. Each year a group of us schedules a Dine the Couve meal at one restaurant a week through the month of October.

Trying the Restaurants

 

So what's it like out there? One year, Diner Nancy went to Niche Wine Bar and Bistro. Now, Nancy frequents Niche and often orders their special tarts. But during the month of October, Niche offered something new. So she ordered it.

Diner Nancy reported back that she loved the pot pie and hoped that it would become a regular menu item at Niche. She highly recommends the special Dine the Couve menu.

Chicken Pot Pie

Fondue
And then, it was time for our Dining Foursome to go to La Bottega. It had been awhile. Dine the Couve Month gave us all a great excuse to get together to break bread, without breaking our budgets!

Couve Foodies Unite!

La Bottega offered two choices of salad, three choices of pasta
and topped it off with a light and fluffy Tiramisu dessert.
After just two foodie experiences we all agreed that we needed to continue meeting that way. So we scheduled weekly Dine the Couve experiences.

Dine the Couve 2018

This year, we'll do it all over again. First, our group will be enjoying Chef Miguel's pasta at Elements, everyone's favorite new restaurant on Main Street. After that, we'll be heading to try out an old favorite... Hudson's Bar and Grill at the Heathman Hotel.
