For the first year ever, Oakland is launching its counterpart to San Francisco’s Dine About Town: it’s called ~OAKLAND RESTAURANT WEEK~, and it debuts January 23rd-29th. Participating restaurants will serve prix-fixe dinner menus (and some lunch menus) for only $20, $30, or $40. The resto list is hot, so don’t forget to make a reso.
Here’s sampling of who’s signed up: Bocanova (four-course family-style lunch $20, four-course family-style dinner $30), Chop Bar (three courses plus red or white wine $30), Encuentro, Oliveto, Ozumo, Pican, and Plum (four courses $40). You’ll also want to look for tasting events with wineries and food producers.
