California residents and visitors can look forward to the third annual California Restaurant Month this January, which will offer dining specials in 33 popular travel destinations in the unique culinary regions of Northern, Central and Southern California. For just one week or for the entire month, select restaurants will offer rare promotions such as gourmet prix-fixe menus, wine pairings and celebrity chef dinners.
This year’s restaurant month has increased its previous number of offerings and includes nine new participating locations — Berkeley, Beverly Hills, downtown Long Beach, Manteca, Moorpark, Santa Monica, Simi Valley, Tuolumne County and Vacaville. Other popular culinary and travel destinations will return to the event this year, including San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Monterey County, Napa Valley and many more. The complete list of featured locations can be found online, and lists of participating restaurants and promotional menus can be found on select location websites, such as VisitNapaValley.com.
