San Diego Restaurant Week, Sep. 24-Oct 1, Gives Back to Community

unnamed (1)

 The long anticipated 13th Annual San Diego Restaurant Week returns Sunday, September 24th through Sunday, October 1st for an edible extravaganza with over 180 reasons to say YUM! With so much to dish about, the lesser known side of San Diego Restaurant Week and the San Diego County Chapter of the California Restaurant Association often flies under the radar: a community centered, philanthropic undertaking that continues long after the tastiest week of the year has concluded.
Unlike a majority of Restaurant Weeks throughout the country that are organized by for-profit companies, San Diego Restaurant Week is run as a non-profit organization; generating funds which go back into our community to support a wide variety of culinary arts and garden programs throughout San Diego’s inner-city schools. Support and involvement in programs such as the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program, which provides backpacks of food for chronically hungry elementary school students to take home over the weekend, have shown the true reach of SDRW’s ability to utilize one week of dining to transform the lives of those in our community.
Don’t just “dine out” – Dine out during SDRW and support an organization that is not only committed to providing you a memorable experience, but a better future for the county we love to dine in! Over 180 participating restaurants will offer three-course prix-fixe dinner menus for $20, $30, $40 or $50 per person and/or two-course prix-fixe lunch menus for $10, $15 or $20 per person. The participating restaurants span across the county from the South Bay to East County and to the North borders of Oceanside and Fallbrook.
Now is your time to dine with over 150,000 fellow diners to celebrate San Diego’s thriving culinary scene. Tickets are not necessary for this delectable week of discounted dining, but reservations are recommended! Visit SanDiegoRestaurantWeek.com for more information, including a list of participating restaurants, or to make your reservations in advance!
