Restaurant Weeks in the Bay Area
Restaurant weeks occur all throughout the year all throughout the Bay Area. This is a perfect opportunity to families to experience new restaurants or some of their favorite restaurants, at a reasonable and reduced price.
The “Restaurant Week” concept began in 1992 in New York City, where restaurant reviewers persuaded several of the city’s top restaurants to participate in reducing prices all across the city. California followed the success of this and even developed a restaurant month. Online you can find a calendar of all of the restaurant weeks in cities across California.
Walnut Creek’s restaurant week begins April 19 and ends on April 26th with seventeen restaurants participating. All restaurants have a fixed, reduced price in order to attract new customers to their restaurants. Walk down Walnut Creek and grab a 20$ lunch or a 30-40$ at restaurants such as 1515 Restaurant & Loungy, Corners Tavern, Fleming’s Steakhouse and Massimo Ristorante.
San Francisco is just another city of many that hosts restaurant week as well, this year beginning on June 1 to June 15th, 2015. Each restaurant has a pre fixed two or three course lunch for just $18.95 and three course dinners for $36.95. Customers can take up to 25% off specially crafted menu items at some of San Francisco’s finest restaurants.
