Dine Newport Beach and the Newport Beach Restaurant Association announce the 10th anniversary of Newport Beach Restaurant Week, taking place January 18-31, 2016.

As the longest running restaurant week in Orange County, the annual event provides special prix-fixe menus for lunch and dinner at a wide variety of premier eateries such as The Ritz Prime Seafood, Sol Cocina, Slapfish, Muldoon’s Irish Pub, Provenance, Tackle Box, Fig & Olive, Sushi Roku and more.

“As the first restaurant week event in Orange County, Newport Beach Restaurant Week continues to successfully showcase the ten distinct dining neighborhoods of the city,” says Newport Beach Restaurant Association President Jim Walker, owner of The Bungalow Restaurant.

“The inspiration behind the yearly event is to bring new guests to the area and support the economic growth of our community. 2015’s program generated the monumental amount of $4.6 million in consumer spending in our community of 85,000, and we look towards 2016 to make an even bigger impact.”

During the 14 days of Restaurant Week, prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus are available starting at the approachable rate of $10 for lunch and maxing out at $50 for dinner.

With a plethora of options available, guests are able to feed their curiosity through the approachable price points and the variety of cuisines.
