Clear your calendar, and loosen up that belt a notch, because it’s the first La Cocina Restaurant Week (March 6th-12th), with seven nights of prix-fixe dinners with La Cocina graduates and guest chef collaborations. They’re hosting the event in tandem with International Women’s Day, and it’s also a damn good time to celebrate the female and immigrant entrepreneurs who make our country what it is.

The first dinner with El Buen Comer is sold out, but here’s what remains on the schedule:
-Tuesday March 7th at El Huarache Loco with Three Twins Ice Cream, Belcampo, and Marin Country Mart
-Wednesday March 8th at A16 for their Festa Della Donna with El Pípila (this evening requires a standard dinner reservation directly with A16)
-Thursday March 9th at Sabores del Sur 
-Friday March 10th at Los Cilantros with Arguello Restaurant
-Saturday March 11th at D’Maize with Smitten Ice Cream and support from Almanac Taproom
-Sunday March 12th at Nyum Bai with Sophina Uong of Mestiza Taqueria and Emeryville Public Market

Each ticketed dinner will host 40 diners for one seating. Tickets are $85 and can be purchased in advance via the schedule page. This week-long series was made possible with support from OpenTable and illy Caffé. And tremendous thanks to La Cocina, now in their 12th year of incubating food businesses, for facilitating the opening of 19 restaurants and cafés and 5 production facilities.
