Restaurant Week


It All Started in New York Back in 1992....

The brainchild of Restaurant Week was first started by Tim Zagat and Joe Baum in NYC. Initially, they were only offering it as a lunch option during the National Democratic Convention. It was such a success in the first year that it became a 4-week foodie phenomenon. Today, there are Restaurant Weeks all around the world. Having over 450 restaurants in Santa Barbara, we found no other reason not to bring this opportunity to our beautiful city. 


How Does Restaurant Week Work?

Restaurant Week usually lasts a week, where restaurants offer a prix-fixe menu at a reduced price for lunch and dinner. Restaurants in Santa Barbara will offer a 3-course dinner menu that you will be able to enjoy for less than the restaurant’s usual price per plate.

You'll get to feast at restaurants you have been dreaming of eating at, but haven't had the chance to due to time, finances or because you've secretly wanted an excuse to eat like a king all week long. Restaurant menus will be priced at $25, $35 and $45 for dinner, making Santa Barbara Restaurant Week accessible to all that desire a foodie experience like no other.

Restaurant Week will run Friday, February 21 - Friday, March 6, 2020. If you want your restaurant to be a part of this exciting food event, please click here.
