Prepare to revel in 10 days of deliciousness as Tosa Restaurant Week returns for its third year, highlighting the wealth of dining options available in the area.

During the event, which takes place March 14-23, over 25 food and beverage establishments will feature special offers on beverages, food and sweet treats. It’s the perfect opportunity to try out some of the newer eateries and breweries in the area, revisit old favorites or plan a day of local feasting with friends or family.

Offerings include specials like a special pricing on tacos and margaritas at Mex Avenue; a cheese board and wine pairing from The Village Cheese Shop; three-course meals at BB’s on North or Eldr+Rime;  plus discounts on purchases at establishments like Delicious Bites, Plate Pleasures Eatery and Ultimate Confections.

Of course, the goal of a great restaurant week is also to support locally-owned restaurants. So, feel free to order broadly, and be sure to tip on the full value of your meal (not the discounted price).

As guests enjoy specials from local restaurants, they are also encouraged to explore the area, visiting nearby retailers and taking in the growing collection of public murals in the vicinity.
