The third annual Santa Barbara Restaurant Week (February 21st- March 6th) is right around the corner and it’s your chance to experience the best of Santa Barbara’s food scene at a fraction of the cost. Presented by Santa Barbara Uncorked, LLC and sponsored by Jordano’s Foodservice and Pacific Beverage Company, Restaurant Week 2020 is a two week event designed to showcase the culinary delights of Santa Barbara crafted by the area’s finest eating establishments.
For more than 20 years, Restaurant Week founders Tim Zagat and Joe Baum orchestrated a 4-week celebration of New York’s finest food. Their focus was making the area’s best dining experiences accessible to all, and the event became such a hit that cities around the globe soon followed suit. In spring of 2018, the SB Restaurant Week founders brought the foodie phenomenon to the American Riviera, showcasing the best of Santa Barbara’s culinary scene.
This year’s local event will benefit the California Restaurant Association Foundation’s ProStart® program. Developed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, ProStart is a two-year culinary arts and hospitality management program that reaches more than 9,000 students at 127 public high schools in California. With curriculum aimed at empowering tomorrow’s culinary leaders, the ProStart program perfectly aligns with the vision of the Santa Barbara Restaurant Week founders and the mission of this annual celebration.
From February 21st- March 6th 2020, each participating restaurant will offer a prixfixe menu that includes a $25, $35 or $45 3-course dinner option. Throughout the week, tasting rooms will also offer special wine tasting experiences and many local hotels will provide discounted room rates to participating guests.
The third annual Restaurant Week is an opportunity for locals and visitors alike to taste the best of Santa Barbara.
