Second Annual Santa Barbara Restaurant Week | February 22nd – March 3rd

The second annual Santa Barbara Restaurant Week is right around the corner (February 22nd- March 3rd) and is 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 2019 is a 10-day 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 Weeek founders brought the foodie phenomenon to the American Riviera, showcasing the best of Santa Barbara’s more than 450 restaurants and eateries.

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 22nd- March 3rd, each participating restaurant will offer a prix-fixe menu that includes a $25 2-course lunch and $40 3-course dinner option. Throughout the week, tasting rooms will also offer special wine tasting experiences and many local hotels will offer discounted SBRW room rates to participating guests.
