As Summer winds down, our Restaurant Scene picks up as San Diego Foodie’s most awaited event, San Diego Restaurant Week (SDRW), will be making its way back on Sunday, September 26th to Sunday, October 3rd! For 8 straight days, San Diego Restaurant Week’s participating restaurants attract thousands of hungry customers with delectable Brunch, Lunch, & Dinner menus unique to SDRW at sweet prices. 

The California Restaurant Association (CRA) has just announced that registration for restaurants to participate is NOW OPEN and you can enroll here. 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 & showed their immense support during our first ever SDRW April Spring Harvest event, which was created by the CRA to support the San Diego restaurant industry as they eased back towards a full reopening. The CRA has brought back the original San Diego Restaurant Week format for this coming Fall, furthering its support for the restaurant community and serving as a great tool to facilitate pandemic recovery.

"After the restaurant industry took the hit from COVID-19, Restaurant Week was the perfect opportunity for us at Carte Blanche Bistro & Bar to showcase our French-Mexican cuisine to the community.  We, like many businesses, were fighting to recover from a downturn in business but Restaurant Week was a big success for us and were encouraged by the guest turnout.  San Diego Restaurant Week really helped us get new guests in the door during a tough time and helped us turn them into lasting relationships in our growing base of loyal patrons.  We look forward to another successful Restaurant Week ahead."

- Chuck Ross, Owner of Carte Blanche Bistro & Bar
