About the Event
Bill and Kim Prescott at Cafe Nola,
the first Dine with Us Downtown destination Aug. 4, 2011.
Dine with Us Downtown is a monthly
initiative founded summer 2011 by Jaguars senior vice president of
operations and CFO Bill Prescott with his wife Kim, in partnership with
Downtown Vision, Inc.
In Prescott's personal campaign to bring
more diners Downtown, his inspiration came from an article in the Wall
Street Journal about Robert De Niro inviting his friends and business
associates to dine at restaurants in TriBeCa, and how that simple action
helped revive the neighborhood restaurants as they recovered from 9/11.
The purpose of Dine with Us Downtown is to showcase Downtown as a true Jacksonville dining destination. Downtown is home to more than 30
fine-dining and casual establishments. This monthly event brings diners from across the
Jacksonville area to dine Downtown at a predetermined restaurant on the
Northbank or Southbank. Dine with Us Downtown is open to the public, and reservations are recommended.
Mayor Alvin Brown and his family at the Jan. 25, 2012, Dine with Us Downtown at Zodiac Bar and Grill.
