Restaurant ‘Week’ Comes to Town

Courtesy &nbsp&nbsp McGee’s Bar & Grill, in the historic Leona Hotel building, is participating in Restaurant Week.

Restaurant ‘Week’ Comes to Town

The annual celebration of local eateries, Alameda Restaurant Week, takes place over 11 days: from Thursday, Jan. 17 to Sunday, Jan. 27, with more than 40 participating restaurants. This is the second annual Restaurant Week in Alameda, which is part of the California Restaurant Month campaign to promote California’s culinary experiences.

The idea behind the event is to offset typically slow business in for local restaurants. During the 11days, locals can support Alameda’s dining scene by visiting participating restaurants, who will be offering prix fixe menus and specials. 

New this year is a raffle. Pick up a raffle card at any participating restaurant and get the card stamped at each participating restaurant visited. When a card is fully stamped, it can be turned in at any participating restaurant to be entered to win more than $1,300 in Alameda restaurant gift cards.
