Borough President Marty Markowitz on Tuesday announced the second annual Dine In Brooklyn celebration, which will run from April 11 through April 20, 2005. Participating restaurants will offer a prix fixe lunch or dinner menu, or both, for $19.55.

This year’s price point is a celebration of the Brooklyn Dodgers’ 1955 World Series victory, explained Markowitz.

"It’s time to step up to the plate," he said. "As the great Jackie Robinson would have noted - it’s a steal."

Among the restaurateurs at Borough Hall on April 5 who offered samples from their menus, was chef Michael Fiore, (pictured left, with his duck pastilla roll) and sommelier Robert Amato (right, with Fiore’s chocolate mascarpone cheesecake) of Tempo restaurant in Park Slope.

In addition to Tempo, 180 restaurants will participate in this year’s event, including 2-year-old Henry Grattan’s, in Bay Ridge, where chef Martin Bradley is offering a pan-seared salmon on a bed of green mashed potatoes subtly-flavored with wasabi as one of four entrees on a three-course prix fixe dinner menu; Carroll Gardens icon Marco Polo Ristorante, which is offering a broiled trout and spinach roll among the five entrees on its three-course dinner menu; and the new Dhaka Indian Restaurant, in Brooklyn Heights, which is offering a complete lunch or dinner for two. (This year’s price does not include beverages, tax and gratuity.)
