Local Love: OC Restaurant Week
Monday March 2, 2015see more by jen
The 2015 Orange County Restaurant Week is happening all week through Saturday, March 7th with more than 100 restaurants participating in the countywide event.
During the weeklong event, participating restaurants will offer special three-course menus, many with a cocktail or signature item at no additional charge.
Each restaurant will have the freedom and flexibility to showcase its best offerings by talented chefs who will, no doubt, personalize each menu to reflect their individual culinary style. Participating restaurants will offer prix-fixe menus within the following price categories: lunch for $10, $15 or $20, and dinner for $20, $30, $40 or $50.
Following is a list of the restaurants participating in this year’s OC Restaurant Week 2015 (each name is linked to its menu!)

PARTNERSHIP WITH GIRL SCOUTS OF ORANGE COUNTY
This year, OC Restaurant Week 2015 joins forces with Girl Scouts of Orange County to celebrate the world’s largest girl-led business, Girl Scout Cookies sales, during Orange County’s favorite culinary event! During OC Restaurant Week – which happens to be the last week that Girl Scout Cookies will be available on sale in Orange County until 2016 – select restaurants will offer delicious desserts inspired by and featuring Girl Scout Cookies! Some of the OC Restaurant Week participating restaurants are even hosting local Girl Scouts for a Preview Tasting, where girls will get the chance to taste the sweet treats and meet with the restaurant’s chef – all important as many of them strive to earn culinary and business badges.
