2014 has barely begun, and we've already found a great way to spoil your new year's diet resolution. This year, Portland Dining Month will take place in March rather than June, which means that we're only two months away from a city full of tasty, affordable 3-course meals.  

If all goes as planned, the move will bring business to local restaurants at a typically lower-volume time of year, while skirting the long lines of the summer dining boom. 

2014's Portland Dining Month will feature the same dazzling deal as last year: three delicious courses for only $29. Over 80 restaurants participated in the event last year, and dozens of local favorites have already signed up for 2014. Here's who's on board thus far: 

  • 23Hoyt
  • Acadia: A New Orleans Bistro
  • Aviary
  • Bar Avignon
  • Bluehour
  • Chart House
  • Clarklewis
  • Country Cat
  • Davis Street Tavern
