The tenth annual Oakland Restaurant Week is set for Jan. 9 through Jan. 20, which as usual is more than a week.
Featuring special events such as Jan. 10's "Discover Temescal" (with art walks, historical tours, happy hours, and more) and Jan. 12's "Hide and Go Eat" restaurant scavenger hunt, and with a portion of its proceeds from all its events and activations being donated to the Alameda County Community Food Bank, the popular wintertime event attracts food-lovers mainly because of the many prix-fixe brunch, lunch, and dinner menus offered during that week-plus by local restaurants and bars.
These special meals are priced at $10, $20, $30, $40, $50, $60. $70, and $80.
Participating restaurants for 2020's event haven't yet been announced — they want to keep you guessing — but the eighty or so establishments that offered deals during 2019's Oakland Restaurant Week included Benchmark Oakland, Parlour, alaMar, Dragon Gate Bar and Grille, Bellanico, Duende, Mockingbird, Homestead, Nido, and many more.
