Save the date for the 2nd Annual Santa Barbara Restaurant Week, presented by Santa Barbara Uncorked, LLC.
From February 22 through March 3, taste the best of Santa Barbara with exclusive menus curated by the city’s premier restaurants.
With menus priced at $25 and $40, this is a chance to experience the best of Santa Barbara. Participating restaurants will offer a two-course lunch and three-course dinner prix-fixe menu of select items offered at a reduced price, and wine tasting rooms will offer special tasting experiences.
Proceeds from restaurant registration will help to support the ProStart® program, which educates and provides scholarships for the next generation of young food service leaders. ProStart® is a two-year culinary art and hospitality management program developed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation and run by restaurant associations on a state level. Over 127 public high schools in California use this curriculum reaching 9,000 students. Santa Barbara Restaurant Week’s donation will specifically go to the California Restaurant Association Foundation’s ProStart® program.
The Santa Barbara community welcomed the inaugural Restaurant Week in February 2018, drawing both locals and out-of-towners to experience the area’s diverse culinary scene. Following the same recipe for success, the second annual Santa Barbara Restaurant Week will again feature dozens of the city’s top restaurants, hotels and wine tasting rooms curating exclusive tasting options and prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus.

Originating over two decades ago in New York City with restaurant connoisseurs Tim Zagat and Joe Baum, Restaurant Week is a celebration of the city’s finest food – a community event designed to showcase the bold flavors and exotic tastes of the world’s best eateries. The New York event has since become a 4-week foodie phenomenon, inspiring cities around the globe to participate.
