"As we enter into our eighth year for Orange County’s largest culinary celebration, OC Restaurant Week, we are thrilled to be able to join nearly two-thirds of the cities in the county for this event,” explained Pamela Waitt, president of the OC Restaurant Association. “This year, we go one step further in connecting OC diners to restaurants on our rich culinary landscape by introducing an exciting new element to the pricing structure with an $80 prix-fixe pairing ‘Luxe’ dinner menu offering!”

During OC Restaurant Week, select restaurants will offer delicious desserts inspired by and featuring Girl Scout Cookies! Some of the OC Restaurant Week participating restaurants will host local Girl Scouts for a Preview Tasting, where girls will get the chance to taste the sweet treats and meet with the restaurant’s chef – all important as many of them strive to earn culinary and business badges.

This year’s festivities will kick off with an official “FIRST BITES” Launch Party on Saturday, March 5th at Irvine Marriott. Guests attending the launch party will have the unique opportunity to experience over 40 food and drink stations prepared by a variety of OC Restaurant Week participating restaurants. For FIRST BITES information visit http://www.ocrestaurantweek.com/launch-party.html. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend.

“Partnering with the OC Restaurant Association for OC Restaurant Week is a great opportunity for Destination Irvine to garner exposure for Irvine's global cuisine on a broader scale," said Wendy Haase, Director of Tourism Marketing for Destination Irvine. "The partnership also allows us to support Orange County's culinary scene, which is a big part of why people visit the destination."
