Restaurant Week: 9 days of delicious deals
Every winter the Sonoma County Visitors Bureau supports Sonoma Restaurant Week, which serves to keep local restaurants open and busy throughout Sonoma County during slow winter months. But this winter has been more than slow. For some the “atmospheric rivers” and accompanying stormy weather have brought disaster.
This year, Restaurant Week is March 2 to 11. It’s a chance to try restaurants at lower prices than normal, or enjoy a “cheap date” at a local favorite.
Here are those Sonoma Valley restaurants that are offering special Restaurant Week meals, all priced at $19, $29, and $39 and ranging from two to three courses, listed alphabetically:
