Where to Eat for San Diego Restaurant Week

View as Map

It's baaaack! The California Restaurant Association's bi-annual San Diego Restaurant Week (it's actually six days) is scheduled to run from Sunday, January 13 to Friday, January 18.

Eater San Diego parsed the list of 196 participating restaurants just for you and we've come up with a dozen suggestions that are worth a try, or a revisit.

Before we begin, can we all agree that the default Restaurant Week dish, braised short ribs, needs to be put out to pasture?

And if you think that Restaurant Week's jumped the shark, make up your own version. Take this opportunity to try a new-to-you restaurant or stop in at a favorite neighborhood eatery. However you choose to spend the week, just make sure that part of it is spent in a restaurant — our local chefs and owners need your support!
