San Diego Restaurant Week Extended
San Diego Restaurant “Week” has gone into overtime. Originally scheduled to conclude on January 21, the popular bi-annual event has been extended to January 28.
That means an extra week of dining at more than 130 area restaurants at special prices for three-course meals for $20, $30 or $40 per person, depending on the restaurant.
"We extended Restaurant Week becuase of the success of the first week," says spokesperson Jenna Thompson. "This gives people extra time to participate if they were too busy last week, or if the places they wanted to try were all filled up."
This is the seventh year for San Diego Restaurant Week, held twice annually. Diners use the special program as a way to try restaurants that might not ordinarily be in their budget.
To participate in Restaurant Week, reservations are not required, but are strongly encouraged. Each year, area eateries report that guest counts are higher than normal during the promotion.
