Update: San Diego Restaurant Week has been extended for a second week! Sample your way at one of the 150 participating restaurants from January 26-31, 2014.
All the holiday feasting may have you thinking of fasting, but don’t start that New Year’s diet just yet! San Diego Restaurant Week is just around the corner. If you don’t yet have plans to enjoy San Diego Restaurant Week, January 19 – 24, 2014, here are the top 5 reasons why you should change your plans:
1. Healthy Options
While not everyone makes a New Year’s resolution to lose weight, many diners have healthier eating in mind in January. Fortunately, several San Diego Restaurant Week participating restaurants are known for their healthy-yet-delicious options. Try the Good Things Growing, an Indian corn pudding, at Indigo Grill or the seasonal fish entree at Roppongi Restaurant & Sushi Bar to discover that healthy food doesn’t have to be boring.
2. Dining Around the Globe
San Diego is a cultural melting pot, especially when it comes to restaurants. Start the week with dinner at Nobu for Japanese fare, try an Italian favorite at BICE Ristorante, and round out the week with lunch at Taste of Thai. Your taste buds will have traveled the world in one week.
3. New Venues for San Diego Restaurant Week
Whether it’s the brand new SEA180º Coastal Tavern or the recently updated Market Restaurant + Bar, each San Diego Restaurant Week gives diners a chance to try new venues. Check out the grand opening Croce’s Park West, a new spot by the owners of the original Croce’s restaurant downtown, which closed in 2013.
4. California Restaurant Month
San Diego’s January Restaurant Week is part of a month-long celebration of California dining. Thanks to California Restaurant Month, travelers up and down the state can sample cuisine from more than 30 California destinations. So enjoy a January road trip, and be sure to stop in San Diego between January 19-24!
5. Great Deals
Of course, the best reason to dine during San Diego Restaurant Week is to take advantage of the great deals. With three-course meals at some of San Diego’s finest restaurants starting at $25, Restaurant Week can help you recover from all that holiday spending.
