Orange County Restaurant Week mark’s it’s 7th year and it growing quickly in participation.  For the restaurants, it is a great opportunity to showcase their best items. For LA, IE and OC Foodies, it is a chance try full course meals from some of Orange County’s best restaurant at a discount. During Orange County restaurant week 2015, I look forward to trying out new restaurants and older restaurants that I have yet to visit. It is a great time to see if the restaurants put their best foot forward.

The Orange County Restaurant Week menus will be available during lunch and dinner at many restaurants. The lunch menu is priced at $10, $15, or $20. Dinner menu is priced at $20, $30, $40, or $50 for each prix fixe menu. Typically the OC restaurants at the higher end of the cost scale are offering more sophisticated dishes.
