Edmonton Downtown Dining Week

This seems to be one of the least-well advertised events in this city. Runs from March 7-16, with various restaurants having $15, 25 or 35 menus (some lunch).

I was looking at some of the menus posted for this, and compared to Original Fare group's Forkfest, it looks pretty underwhelming. Many of the restaurants are one's I wouldn't even think about going to anyway: Ceili's (isn't it just a bar?), Spaghetti Factory, Rics, Sorrentinos... Is there anything really worthwhile to aim for. Madison's is on the list, but it looks like $35 gets you 2 courses, which isn't a great deal considering for $45 you can get 2 really good courses at some of the city's best places.

I had thought I might like to try Four Rooms, 1 of the apps and both the entres have artichokes and I am allergic so...not going there.

One that looks interesting is Sultan's Palace, which as a mezes-style menu at the three various prices. Anyone have any experience there? I've never heard of it.

Also on the list is the Creperie, which I have not much interest in but this might be the time if I was going to try it. Unfortunately they don't list the special menu. What do people think of it in general? I'm not a big crepe fan but have friends, newcomers to the city, who really want to try it (they spend a lot of time in France and are crepe fans!). I might be willing to tag along with them if it seemed promising.
