Taste The Town: Oakland Restaurant Week

Let the feast begin!

From January 11–21, Oakland Restaurant Week recognizes the creativity and passion on display every day in restaurants around the city. 

Spanning two weekends, the celebration offers locals a chance to dine out and take advantage of special deals. For foodies, it's the perfect excuse to revisit favorite restaurants and uncover previously hidden gems.

During the 10-day food fest, participating restaurants are offering prix fixe lunch and dinner menus at $10, $20, $30, $40, and $50. 

Menus are available on the Oakland Restaurant Week web site, and customers can make reservations via OpenTable.

This year, ORW has added exclusive dining experiences, including two Local Food Adventures: the Rockridge Neighborhood Heritage Food Tour, and the Grand Lake Cultural Cuisine Tour.

In a special offer, #ORW18 is giving away a $100 Visa gift card to a Hoodline reader! For a chance to enter, answer the questions in this Oakland news quiz correctly:
