23 Syracuse restaurants on the menu for this yearâ??s Dining Week

      The AmeriCU Credit Union Dining Week in Downtown Syracuse kicks off Friday and runs through February 28.

      Check out the list below to see the participating restaurants.

      The event features three courses for $25 or less from many restaurants in the Syracuse area.

      Social media will have a big presence this year, as a Facebook and Twitter photo contest will be held all week. Diners are invited to take pictures of their meals and post them on the Downtown Syracuse Facebook page or tweet them using the hashtag #diningweeksyr for a chance to win prizes and gift certificates to downtown restaurants.

      AmeriCU is giving away a $25 Visa gift card every day to those who enter on their Facebook and Twitter pages. Additionally, The Everson Museum of Art is offering a 20% discount on two adult admissions to their "American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O'Keefe to Rockwell" exhibit with your receipt from a Dining Week participant.
