This year’s inaugural Ocean Beach Restaurant Week will provide the perfect excuse to venture out and experience what the scrumptious food, friendly people and hard-working merchants in OB are all about.

The event will run from Dec. 3 through Dec. 7.

For five mouth-watering days, Ocean Beach will transform into a foodie’s paradise with more than 20 participating restaurants offering special discounts and prix fixe menu options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“We have it all here in OB — cafes, bistros, delis, pubs, five-star dining,” said Chris Stavros, owner of the Olive Tree Marketplace and Kecho’s Café. “We’re inviting all of San Diego to venture out to our little beachfront community and revisit an old favorite restaurant or discover a new one.”

The idea for a hyper-local week highlighting the best dining options in the coastal neighborhood stemmed from the innovative minds of Stavros; Kevin Alsobrook from Nick’s at the Pier; Dave Martin from Shades Oceanfront Bistro; Steve Grosch from Ocean Beach Hotel; Mike Zouroudis from Raglan Public House and Norma Slaman from Newbreak Café and Coffee as a way to revive the nearly disbanded Ocean Beach Restaurant, Entertainment and Lodging (OBREL) group, which launched two years ago.

“Restaurant Week is an opportunity to eat delicious food and it’s also a chance for our business community to come together and showcase the great things OB has to offer,” said Alsobrook. “Most of the participating restaurants are locally owned and operated and have been for years, and we’re very proud of that.”

From coffee shops to burger joints, fine-dining restaurants to brewpubs, Ocean Beach has a world of lip-smacking food, exquisite wines and craft beers to discover. No tickets or passes are required. Simply stop by or make a reservation at any of OB’s participating restaurants. To see what the community has to offer during Restaurant Week, visit or call (619) 224-4906.
