One of the most anticipated weeks of the year for foodies is just around the corner. To kick off fall, the twice-yearly San Diego Restaurant Week will serve up a culinary smorgasbord of prix fixe lunches and dinners from Sept. 16 to Sept. 21 at more than 180 restaurants throughout the county.

“We have over 35 amazing and tasty restaurants within this [Mission Bay and La Jolla] area, which is almost a quarter of where San Diego Restaurant Week’s restaurants are located,” said Laurel McFarlane, president of McFarlane Promotions.

“It’s a great way to get reacquainted with some of your favorite neighborhood restaurants and, in addition, it encourages you to explore new ground and discover your new favorite dining spots,” she said.

Prices are set at $10, $15 or $20 for a two-course lunch or $20, $30 or $40 for a three-course dinner. No tickets or passes are required. Simply dine out at any of the participating restaurants or call ahead to make a reservation.
