Several Lompoc eateries will offer special dining options over a seven-day span this month as part of the city’s fourth annual Restaurant Week celebration.
The campaign, which encourages community members and visitors to dine at local food establishments, will kick off Monday, Feb. 18, and run through Sunday, Feb. 24. At least 19 restaurants have signed on as participants and plan to mark the occasion with prix fixe meals, two-for-one dining options or other specials priced at $20.19 to commemorate the year.
Some wineries and tasting rooms also will participate with drink specials, and some of the participating restaurants also are planning to offer wine and beer specials as part of the promotion.
"Restaurants have all been gearing up for Restaurant Week and look forward to both new and old faces coming through their doors," said Marlee Bedford, a communications director with the Lompoc Chamber of Commerce and the event's lead organizer. "We have some new restaurants to the [Lompoc] Valley that will be joining us for the first year, and some local favorites that are trying out Restaurant Week for the first time ever."
There are no tickets or prior purchases required for customers to take advantage of the deals.
