Alameda is launching its first-ever Restaurant Week from Jan. 12 through Jan. 21.
Coinciding with Calfornia Restaurant Month — which is this month — the event will feature special menus at twenty of the island's nearly 200 restaurants, some of which are Michelin-recommended and Zagat-rated.
Participating restaurants include Trabocco, Injera, Phnom Penh House, Speisekammer, Otaez, The Star on Park, Little House Cafe, Dragon Rouge, Asena, Cafe Jolie, East End, Mama Papa Lithuania, Cinema Grill, Forbidden Island, and more.
As an example of the special menu options, Asena will serve grilled-cheese sandwiches and a special lamb-and-onion-stuffed-eggplant dish as well as pots de creme for dessert.
Oakland's Restaurant Week — whose participants include Lungomare, the Terrace Room, Chop Bar, Luka's Taproom, Italian Colors, and dozens more, offering prix-fixe menus at $10, $20, $30, $40, and $50 price points — lasts a bit more than an actual week and is slated for Jan. 11 through Jan. 21.
