Haute Event: OC Restaurant Week Returns

It’s back! Orange County Restaurant Week returns for another round of great food and great reasons to try restaurants off your beaten path. With more restaurants participating than ever, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of this food phenom. Grab a date, loosen your belts and start checking off your list.

Running Feb. 27th – Mar. 5th, the lunch and dinner prix fixe event is repeating price points of $10, $15 and $20 lunches along with dinners ranging at $20, $30 and $40, but this year, the restaurants are stepping up with even more amazing offerings.

“Now, in our third year with our fifth event, Orange County Restaurant Week has become one of the most anticipated culinary events of the year, and this year, with only 100 of the regions best restaurants participating, we truly have something for everyone,” says Pamela Waitt, president of the OC Restaurant Association. “Each restaurant will present menus that showcase its finest offerings at great prices during this one week. After all, the goal is for everyone involved to have fun!”

Great new restaurants participating include Capital Grille, House of Big Fish and Ice Cold Beer and RAYA, but your favorites like TAPS, Ruths Chris and SOL Cocina are all in the game, too. It’s impossible to hit up every spot on the list but trust us, it’s worth trying.
