It’s winter and all we want to do is eat yummy food and snuggle in. Thankfully, Oakland Restaurant Week is here to get us off of our couches and into Oakland’s restaurants! Oakland’s food scene is off the charts this year and now we have an excuse to eat out as much as possible.

From January 19 – 29, some of Oakland’s most delicious restaurants will be offering special prix-fixe lunch/dinner menus with $20, $30, $40, & $50 price tags. This gives restaurant goer’s the chance to try something they wouldn’t typically order and at a transparent price.

Make a reservation on Open Table, or shoot the restaurant a phone call to make sure you get a spot!

This year we want to highlight the restaurants that are donating a portion of their Oakland Restaurant Week proceeds to the Alameda County Community Food Bank.
