The artist formerly known as Dine About Town is back, but this time it’s called ~SAN FRANCISCO RESTAURANT WEEK~ and is presented by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association instead of San Francisco Travel. It runs from Wednesday January 21st through Friday January 30th, and there have been a few changes to the program too. They’ve partnered with OpenTable and have officially named the SF-Marin Food Bank as a charity partner, meaning the bank will receive $0.25 per cover during Restaurant Week.
So, the food: two-course lunches are available for $25, three-course dinners are $40, and a new option, the discovery menu, is $85 including beverage pairings. The discovery menu is intended to offer a chance for restaurants to get a little more creative, and for diners to try something new. For example, Hog & Rocks is offering a special whiskey dinner with High West whiskey, while AQ will be doing a “Roots” dinner with a Roots soundtrack and root vegetables on the menu. Participation, menus, and hours vary by location; full details will be released on their website January 5th. Confirmed participants include Ichi Sushi and Ni Bar, RN74, and Waterbar. To celebrate the new partnership, some restaurants will also be offering additional specials on drinks and appetizers, in addition to the prix-fixe, so look for that.
If you’re really into Restaurant Week and end up visiting four or more restaurants, post a picture (including the menu) to their Facebook page, and you’ll be entered to win one of many gift certificates to local restaurants.
