The 2021 San Diego Restaurant Week is April 11 - 18
San Diego foodies will again be thrilled the annual San Diego Restaurant Week – the 17th annual - is starting this weekend, kicking off on Sunday April 11th and running through next Sunday April 18th. And no doubt this special event takes on a more special meaning for diners AND restaurants given the restrictions that have been in place but which have been modified in a positive direction recently.
San Diegans can dine on a wide array of food offerings at great prices at more than 90 restaurants all over San Diego (fewer than in pre-pandemic days)!
How can a dedicated foodie go wrong with this many options?!
San Diego Restaurant Week is all about reduced prices on fixed price menus at lunch, brunch (not all restaurants offer brunch) and dinner covering a broad geographic area – downtown, inland and East County, and northward in our coastal cities to Oceanside and Fallbrook. [photo is a personal photo NOT a restaurant offering - but it looks good, doesn't it?!]
Prices vary for multiple courses, with dinner prices, as expected, higher than lunch; lunch prices range from $10 to $25 for 2 courses; dinner prices with 3 courses range from $20 to $60. You can’t go wrong!!
2021 San Diego Restaurant week is an opportunity to check out higher-end eateries you might not ordinarily dine at, or explore other restaurants you’ve heard about but haven’t tried yet. And why not step out the community where you live!?
Participating restaurants will observe the current COVID protocols and guidelines so you can feel safe…but expect some limitations as far as the number of diners allowed due to some restictions on the number of diners allowed at one time.
A number of eateries offer indoor and outdoor dining, curbside pick-up/take-out, and even deliveries - check first to be sure depending on your preferences, pricing, and availability.
You are likely to find plenty of dining options near where you live, or why not travel a bit further to explore new places? C’mon, be adventurous!
Taking part in Restaurant Week in San Diego is easy. Just visit the restaurants that intrigue you and take advantage of fine dining and great prices. No tickets or passes are needed, and while reservations are NOT necessary it always makes sense to make reservations, especially for dinner and on the weekend, since this is such a popular event. Better to be safe than having to wait in line or find out there is no room.
Some restaurants will offer Open Table reservations directly from the Restaurant Week website, as well as from their own business websites.
So plan lunch or dinner out this coming San Diego Restaurant Week, or more than one…just bring your wallet and a good appetite!
