Join in the eight-day event as talented chefs dish out their most delectable menu offerings just for you. Dine like a seasoned pro and check out these five reasons why SDRW is a foodie’s most beloved event. 

1. Dine at San Diego’s Most Prominent Eateries for Sweet Prices 

Featuring over 100 restaurants offering variations of delicious and diverse menus to attract hungry guests. Participating eateries from across San Diego County will offer three-course prix-fixe dinner menus for $20, $30, $40, $50 or $60 per person and two-course prix-fixe lunch menus for $10, $15, $20 or $25 per person. Restaurants bursting with innovation will be showcasing their menus through traditional in-house dining and expanded outdoor spaces.  

2. An 8-Day Edible Extravaganza

This event is not one or three days, but EIGHT FULL DAYS of tantalizing specials brought to you by San Diego’s best. Since you have eight days to dine, this week is the perfect time to take a culinary tour through the diversely talented food culture of San Diego. Don’t just eat and drink like every other week—indulge until your heart's content and your tummy is full! 

3. Discover New and Old Favorites

After a year of being in quarantine, we are all eager to get out and rediscover new and old favorites. Whether you’re participating in SDRW to indulge in your old go-to spot or introducing your tastebuds to new establishments offering the best California-based cuisine, there’ll be a bite to satisfy all. 

4. More Than Just a Foodie Event

Life will be delicious this Restaurant Week, not only because of the quality cuisine but because of the meaningful connections you can make over a good meal. Center this SDRW around those you love to spend the most time with or those you are just getting to know. Delicious food is not only enjoyable to savor but also a great way to bring people together.

5. Support for Our Beloved SD Restaurants

Each year, participating restaurants report a huge increase in foot traffic both during and after this delicious event has concluded. Our San Diego community has proven to be extremely loyal to restaurants throughout this past year and showed immense support during the first ever SDRW April 2021 Spring Harvest event, which was created by the California Restaurant Association (CRA) to support the San Diego restaurant industry as they eased back towards a full reopening. The CRA has brought the original San Diego Restaurant Week format back for this fall, furthering its support for the restaurant community and serving as a great tool to facilitate pandemic recovery.

San Diego Restaurant Week encourages “Restaurant Week Your Way” by creating dynamic meal options and flexibility for the diner. Create the perfect meal with personalized menu options from your favorite participating San Diego eateries by choosing between entrée, appetizer, drink, and dessert combinations to create a customized, one-of-a-kind Restaurant Week experience. 

Tickets are not necessary for this delectable week of discounted dining but reservations are recommended!
