Orange County Restaurant week is coming to town this weekend! From February 23- March 1 there will be prix fixe lunch menus at a large variety of restaurants in the OC ranging from $10-$20 and dinner menus ranging from $20-$40!! There will be more than 100 restaurants participating!

I am looking forward to attending the awesome launch party to set off the excitement that will be happening this Saturday, February 22nd at Newport Beach Lexus with food, wine and beer samplings galore! Although tickets are currently sold out (They do go fast!) Ticket purchases went to support the “No Kid Hungry Share Our Strength Campaign.” To read more about their organization and to have another charity/food event opportunity to support them, click here –> NO KID HUNGRY-SHARE OUR STRENGTH
Make sure to make reservations for your local restaurants quickly as these will go really fast! Everyone loves prix fixe meals to be able to sample a variety of great things on the menu for one all inclusive price!
