Local foodies have whispered, "But we have so many great restaurants right here! When will there be a restaurant week on the Central Coast?" Wonder no more!

It's a low-risk way to test drive Monterey County's fantastic restaurants. Here's a list of just some of the restaurants participating in Monterey Bay Restaurant Week. For the full list - and a preview of the prix-fixe menu each restaurant will offer during Monterey Bay Restaurant Week - check out the official Monterey Bay Restaurant Week site.
