Oakland's Restaurant Week Starts Sunday



For a city as awash in foodie buzz as Oakland, it really was only a matter of time before we got an honest-to-God restaurant week of our own. For a week starting Sunday, January 23, restaurants all over the city will be offering various promotions — $40 prix-fixe dinners at Oliveto, Pican, and Plum; $30 for three courses at Camino and Chop Bar; multi-course lunch menus for $20 at Bocanova, Bay Wolf, and Flora; and several other promotions and special deals — in an attempt to both highlight the city's dining scene and drum up business in typically slow January. Not surprisingly, reservations are going fast; see the website for the full list of participating restaurants and to book seats.
