2009 Restaurant Week Countdown

The inaugural Monterey Bay Restaurant Week begins October 22 and lasts through October 28. It will celebrate culinary culture in the Monterey Bay area as local chefs prepare special menus to showcase their talents.

This event is based on popular events which have sprung up around the nation. With the quality of local restaurants, population of innovative chefs and easy access to artisan farms and of course fresh seafood, the Monterey Bay area has a great story to tell.

Neighboring Santa Cruz Restaurant Week just wrapped up October 8 and was a huge success. Local diners came out in record numbers to enjoy local restaurants, with many restaurants reporting serving two to three times the typical number of customers on some nights.
