Instead of one week, Restaurant Week will be held over two weeks, Jan. 19 – Feb. 1.
The prix fixe menus have also expanded to four options for lunch ($10, $15, $20 and $25) and four for dinner ($20, $30, $40 and $50).
Presented by Dine Newport Beach, the new marketing program for the Newport Beach Restaurant Association, the citywide event invites locals and visitors alike to enjoy 14 days of dining.
“We are excited to announce that Newport Beach Restaurant Week will span for two weeks this year, allowing extra time for diners to experience all the amazing culinary offerings in the city” said NBRA member Dan Miller of The Village Inn on Balboa Island. “Also, the event will introduce new menu pricing options which not only allow more restaurants to participate, but also provide additional dining choices for guests.”
Dine Newport Beach Restaurant Week will showcase a variety of unique dining experiences and cuisines ranging from American favorites to authentic ethnic fare and formal fine dining to hip and sandy-feet-casual.
Restaurants in various neighborhoods throughout the city, from Balboa Island to Corona del Mar to Balboa Village and Fashion Island, will entice both casual diners and foodies alike to enjoy meals from beloved eateries and talented chefs at a great value.
“We’re thrilled to be participating in Restaurant Week for the first time,” said Fig & Olive Executive Chef Pascal Lorange. “Since Fig & Olive opened at Fashion Island, we’ve been humbled by the continuous support of the residents and are honored to be a part of a dining community that’s rapidly expanding with talented chefs and restaurants.”
Newport Beach has emerged as Orange County’s top culinary community. Within each unique Newport Beach neighborhood is an explosion of culinary opportunities.
While locally-loved restaurants have been popular for decades, Newport Beach continues to attract the attention of celebrity chefs and acclaimed restaurateurs, expanding the diversity of dining in this culinary community.
