Sonoma County Restaurant Week 2017
It’s a dream shared by many – to eat our way through all the marvelous restaurants in Sonoma Wine Country. The temptations seem endless, ranging from California cuisine, to Japanese, French, classic American, Italian, German, Peruvian, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Kiwi, Latin American, Mexican, Vietnamese, Chinese, Greek and Thai… all united by the best local ingredients and a commitment to farm-to-table cooking.
With such a richness of restaurants, it might seem a bit overwhelming. Thus, as an oh-so-noble public service, we are proud to present the 8th Annual Sonoma County Restaurant Week.
Running March 6 through 12, 2017, it’s seven days of feasting, making everything easier for you with delicious discounts offered by over 100 eateries.
It’s all just part of our efforts to make your dining dreams come true, as you can experience and indulge, with specially priced three-course dinners for $19, $29, or $39, plus two-course lunches for $10 or $15.
Yet over the years, many have joyfully tried. In fact, each year, friendly competitions spring up between diners, seeing who can eat at the most restaurants.
Some hardcore eaters actually take time off work, and travel to Sonoma County to explore exceptional meals every day through the promotion.
These are sumptuous spreads from top eateries, like The Bay View Restaurant in Bodega Bay offering a $29 dinner menu, or acclaimed French café K&L Bistro in Sebastopol with a $15 lunch and $29 dinner menu.
Check back often for more restaurants and full menus as they are posted.
This is a great way to explore new restaurants, too, such as the recently opened County Bench in Sonoma, offering a $29 dinner, or the just opened Trading Post Restaurant in Cloverdale, with a $39 dinner.
Even the lowest price plates impress, such as the $15 lunch at Woodfour Brewing in Sebastopol. Tempting with shaved spring vegetable salad of Little Gem lettuce, radishes and carrots in Green goddess dressing, or pickled and fermented market vegetables, with a Farmstead cheese melt with whole grain mustard, caramelized onions, arugula and sauerkraut, or a muffaletta sandwich with olive tapenade, local charcuterie and mustard greens on ciabatta.
For the best results in taking on the 17-city tour, a strategy is in order. Even that is easy, however, thanks to the handy planning programs available online.
You can sort by cities and/or price, with each restaurant listing its special menu. As a new feature, you can even make your reservations with a simple mouse click. For reservations browse Sonoma County Restaurant Week listings and click on "Book Now" for OpenTable reservations or "View Website".
And reservations are recommended, especially on weekend nights. Last year, more than 16,000 meals were served from the special prix-fixe menus, with about 25 percent of patrons coming from outside of Sonoma County to score the deals.
