Treat your taste buds to a night out and take advantage of some fine dining at affordable prices with the San Diego Restaurant Week! In January and September of every year, Restaurant Week happens in San Diego and this time it is from September 21-26.

Most people dine out for special occasions only and they have to save up for those occasions.  Restaurant Week allows people to taste and sample at some of the finest restaurants in San Diego.  Over 180 of San Diego’s best restaurants in 12 unique regions will offer prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner.  Prices per person range from $10 to 20 for lunch and $25 to $45 for dinner.

You do not need to buy tickets, but you will want to make reservations at whichever restaurant you visit. Visit as many restaurants you like during the week.  For more information, visit http://www.sandiegorestaurantweek.com/.
