Announcing the Inaugural San Francisco Restaurant Week, 1/21-30 #SFRW

SF-RestaurantWeek400pwOpenTable is thrilled to partner with The Golden Gate Restaurant Association for the inaugural San Francisco Restaurant Week. Formerly known as Dine About Town, the all-new San Francisco Restaurant Week will take place January 21-30 and feature offerings from more than 100 restaurants in 23 neighborhoods serving 24 different cuisines — with two exciting options.

The classic restaurant week prix-fixe menu goes into overdrive with one-of-a-kind $25 two-course lunches and $40 three-course dinners — plus added treats such as an amuse-bouche, a paired beverage, an after-meal takeaway, or other yummy extras. New participants include Bartlett HallChino, and Le Marais Bakery and Bistro.

Available at select restaurants, chefs’ imaginations run wild with the special $85 discovery menu highlighting inspired food and beverage pairings. Hog & Rocks is partnering with High West Whiskey to feature a whiskey-themed dinner. Canela Bistro Bar will create a culinary tour through Spain with a special wine pairing. AQ Restaurant & Bar will offer a roots-themed tasting menu highlighting winter root vegetables set to music by The Roots. Ichi Sushi + Ni Bar will be serving signature beverages alongside a tasting menu and a seasonal produce-inspired dessert to end the night.
