(SANTA YNEZ VALLEY, Calif.) — An additional week and a fresh mix of participating restaurants, wineries, and lodging options promises to make the 2019 Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks the best yet.
Set for Jan. 27-Feb. 10, the 2019 Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks returns for a ninth consecutive year by once again enticing food lovers from near and far with special pricing and the same farm-to-table fare that has long made this Central Coast wine country destination a haven for foodies. For just $20.19, all are invited to savor specially curated three-course tasting menus from the Valley’s top dining establishments.
The most noticeable difference this year, though, is that the Santa Ynez Valley’s annual celebration of local food has been extended from one week to two at the request of diners and restaurateurs alike.
“We continually heard from local restaurants and from diners that the only way to improve Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks is to offer more of it,” said Shelby Sim, President/CEO of Visit the Santa Ynez Valley. “The event has been successful from year one, expanding well beyond what can be fit into just one week. It is exciting to continue to see it grow.”
Blessed with an abundance of imaginative local chefs, deep agricultural roots, and a collaborative culinary scene, dining in the fertile Santa Ynez Valley is an attraction all to itself and a perfect pairing with the region’s world-class wines. The region’s cuisine is unique and diverse, ranging from traditional Scandinavian feasts to contemporary and innovative fare.
Representing each of the Santa Ynez Valley’s six distinct communities, 32 restaurants will participate in Restaurant Weeks in 2019. In addition to the offerings of the Valley’s restaurants, many Santa Ynez Valley wineries will offer wine and small bite pairings in their tasting rooms for $20.19. And special lodging deals are available at hotels throughout the Valley.
