Orange County Restaurant Week 2015 – one of my favorite events each year is Orange County Restaurant Week, the week that celebrates fine dining in the Orange County area with premiere restaurants offering pre-fixe menus at special prices enticing locals and newcomers to enjoy a night out.
Set to run the week of March 1, 2015 through March 7, 2015, Orange County Restaurant Week (often referred to as OC Restaurant Week), hosted a sneak preview tasting event at the beautiful Sub-Zero Wolf Showroom in Costa Mesa. Participating restaurants and dessert specialties included Fig and Olive Newport Beach, Maro, Slapfish, Blue C Sushi, Valenza Chocolatier and Casey’s Cupcakes.
Wines from Starmont vineyards were enjoyed by the guests at this well-attended event that featured Tuna Tartare atop Crispy Potato and sushi from Blue C Sushi, Spinach pastry puffs from Maro, Fig and Olive signature crostini of Zucchini with shaved parmesan, Tuna Tartare, and Shortbread Crostini with Mascarpone cheese and wild berries.
During restaurant week, March 1 through 7, participating restaurants will offer pre-fixe menus for lunch at $10, $15, or $20 per person and dinner pre-fixe menus from $20, $30, $40 or $50 per person. A delicious opportunity for locals and visitors to try new cuisines at affordable prices or visit restaurant faves with new friends, OC Restaurant Week is one of Orange County’s most treasured events.
