The 9th annual Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks makes its return Jan. 27 through Feb. 10, showcasing the region’s culinary scene with $20.19 three-course meals prepared by some of the Valley’s most creative chefs. Also included this year, is a fresh mix of participating restaurants, wineries, lodging options -- and an extra week to enjoy it all.

Some of the Valley’s top dining establishments have been named in this year's annual Restaurant Weeks, and as part of a larger state-wide foodie celebration observed through the month of January called "California Restaurant Month," they have agreed to offer their special menus for not just one week like years' prior, but two. 

“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 President/CEO of Visit the Santa Ynez Valley, Shelby Sim. "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.”

Representing each of the Santa Ynez Valley’s six distinct communities are 32 restaurants, seven wineries offering wine and small bite pairings in their tasting rooms for $20.19, and eight different Valley hotels offering special lodging deals.
