Wine Country Meets Dine Country for 10th Annual Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks

Celebrating its 10th year, Restaurant Weeks offers tastes from the Valley’s finest restaurants and most creative chefs with special three-course meals for $20.20

The Santa Ynez Valley has long been celebrated as much for its creative culinary scene as its world-class wines, but during Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks wine country truly meets dine country.

Set for Jan. 19-31, Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks is back for a 10th consecutive year with a fresh mix of participating restaurants, wineries, and lodging options. The once-a-year celebration of the fork invites foodies from both near and far to savor specially curated three-course tasting menus — each for just $20.20 — from the Valley’s top dining establishments.

“As an affordable, immersive experience, Restaurant Weeks continues to grow in popularity, even after 10 years,” said Shelby Sim, President/CEO of Visit the Santa Ynez Valley. “This is a region best known for its wine, so it is always fun to put on display the increasingly diverse and inspired culinary creations of local chefs. And Restaurant Weeks never disappoints.”

Blessed with an abundance of imaginative local chefs, deep agricultural roots, and a collaborative culinary scene, dining in the fertile Santa Ynez Valley is an attraction all to itself. Ranging from traditional Scandinavian feasts to contemporary and innovative farm-to-table fare, the region’s cuisine is a perfect pairing with the region’s world-class wines.

Representing each of the Santa Ynez Valley’s six distinct communities, nearly three dozen restaurants will participate in this year’s Restaurant Weeks. In addition to the offerings of the Valley’s restaurants, a number of Santa Ynez Valley wineries will offer wine and small bite pairings in their tasting rooms for $20.20.

And special lodging deals are available at hoteliers throughout the Valley.

Dates of participation vary by establishment, but this year’s complete list of participants can be found at here. Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Week menus do not include tax, tip, or beverages, and reservations are strongly encouraged.
