SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego Restaurant Week is back, and this year more than 180 restaurants from around the county are participating.
Organizers say it's a great way to get out and experience something new, and help with the local economy.
"Restaurant Week is a huge boon for the industry as well as the economy at large," California Restaurant Association San Diego County President Mike Morton, Jr. said.
"I think it gets people in the mood of going out and checking out the new restaurants," Tami Ratliffe of Café Chloe said.
Restaurant Week runs from January 13 through 18. Restaurants will offer three-course dinners for $20, $30 or $40, as well as prix fixe lunches.
There's also a new smart phone app so diners can check out the menus and enter to win contests.
