casual dining restaurants will provide a $15 main course, two sides and a drink. Each fine dining restaurant will support an optional three-course lunch and a mandatory dinner menu priced at $25 and $35, respectively.
The lineup so far includes Ima, the Block, the Jamaican Pot, River Bistro, COOP, Colors, Le Crepe, SavannahBlue, the Griot, DUO, Nack's Good Eats, and Yum Village.
