"Dine Downtown" for $20 in Palo Alto Through August

From Palo Alto Weekly online edition:

"The new Palo Alto Downtown Business Improvement District board is launching "Dine Downtown" in August. Modeled after the successful "Dine About Town" initiative in San Francisco, "Dine Downtown" will offer prix-fixe menus on Monday nights in August at several restaurants, including Café Fino/Maddalena's, Gordon Biersch, Il Fornaio, La Strada, Niebaum-Coppola, Nola, Nouveau Trattoria, Osteria, Spago, and Zibibbo. Gordon Biersch's prix-fixe, for example, includes a choice of drink, salad, entrée and dessert (chocolate double fudge cake or carrot cake, for those who were wondering) for $20."

Some friends of mine go out of their way for this deal every year. I hadn't seen anyone mention it (it's possible I missed it) on Chowhound, so I thought I'd alert people. Also, has anyone taken advantage of the deal this month? I'd love to hear about the menu. Otherwise I'll be calling each restaurant individually to find out what they're offering. :(
