San Diego Restaurant Week returns January 11-16, and for the first time it will offer three-course, prix fixe menus for $20, $30, or $40, depending on the restaurant. “Now in its fifth year, San Diego’s reputation as a dining destination that brought 250,000 diners to 150 restaurants last year has made us restaurant week central,” notes Ingrid Croce, event chairwoman. No tickets are required — food enthusiasts may simply dine out at as many participating restaurants as they like all week long. Advance reservations are strongly recommended and can be made online or by calling the restaurants directly.
