Restaurant Week Returns to Oakland

Foodies rejoice! Oakland Restaurant Week returns to the sunny side of the bay and is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with special events and delicious menus.  The popular dining event runs over two weekends for attendees to take full advantage of dining deals and new culinary events and programming.

From January 9-20, participating Oakland restaurants will celebrate the most diverse restaurant week in the region. Offering unique prix fixe menus, the event gives foodies a chance to get out and enjoy an old favorite or explore new dining options throughout the city.

Waterfront Fun.  There is even a dedicated food tour, operated by Local Food Adventures, focused on Jack London Square. Here are all the details:

Let us take you a journey from San Francisco via the Ferry where you’ll explore the food, history, art and culture of the great – and surprising – city of Oakland. On this 3+ hour tour, walk and eat along the East Bay’s waterfront and say “cheers!” to the heritage of Jack London Square, the historic warehouse district and the newly founded Jack London Brewing District. For guests starting in San Francisco, your tour includes round-trip tickets on board the San Francisco Bay Ferry. Already on this side of the bay? Sweet.  You get a slight discount as you don’t need ferry fare.
