Newport Beach Restaurant Week

Local foodies and visitors to Newport Beach can indulge in special gourmet menus which showcase the culinary scene and talent of some of the best Chef’s in the country.

The Newport Beach Restaurant Association along with an esteemed group of community partners and restaurant industry leaders invite the community to the Seventh Annual Newport Beach Restaurant Week kicking off Friday, January 18 through Sunday, January 27, 2013. Save your appetite and stay on budget as this beloved citywide culinary celebration will be extended to ten days in late January, including two full weekends of bargain gourmet dining!

With record restaurant participation in 2013, Newport's finest eateries will serve special three-course prix-fixe gourmet menus at bargain prices of $10, $15 or $20 for lunch and $20, $30 or $40 for dinner all inclusive. Most restaurants will offer a minimum of three offerings per course and early reservations are recommended.

“I’m thrilled to be part of such a thriving culinary community. Over 70 restaurants will participate to build a greater appreciation of the extraordinary dining available in our City and recognize Newport Beach as a world-class culinary destination,” said Jim Walker, President of the Newport Beach Restaurant Association BID and Proprietor of the legendary Bungalow Restaurant in Corona del Mar. He adds, “We look forward to introducing new customers to our restaurant through this event. In addition to being extended to ten days, the menu price points will remain $5 less than in 2011, which gives the community an added incentive and incredible opportunity to dine out frequently during restaurant week at a really great price.”

Uniting traditional to ultra trendy establishments, Newport Beach Restaurant Week promotes the extraordinary diversity and culinary flair found throughout the quaint neighborhoods of Newport Beach. “Local foodies and visitors to Newport Beach can indulge in special gourmet menus which showcase the culinary scene and talent of some of the best Chef’s in the country,” said Sheri Drewy, celebrated restaurateur from Wilma’s Patio on Balboa Island. She adds, “It was the first restaurant week in Orange County launched back in 2007, and now it has become one of the most successful restaurant weeks in the country and one of the OC’s most anticipated culinary celebrations.”

The community is invited to celebrate its love of food during Newport Beach Restaurant Week, which offers culinary delights and bargain three-course prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus prepared exclusively for this event at approximately 25% - 60% off regular prices. There are no tickets or passes required; simply dine at a participating restaurant. Advance reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling restaurants direct, or, by visiting:
