Irvine Restaurant Week Picks – January 10-16th
January 10th marks the start of Irvine Restaurant Week. During Restaurant Week each of the participating restaurants will feature a Prix Fixe menu that typically includes a drink, appetizer, main course and dessert for the price of a full entree and drink.
Each restaurant’s menu is different and some are better than others. Below are my recommendations based on price, menu and reputation of the restaurant.
For a full list of restaurants visit Destination Irvine’s website.
Slater’s 50/50 has the best value for the money. For $15, you get our choice of appetizer, entree, dessert and a drink. This deal is about the same price as ordering a burger and a drink. Lake Forest(Irvine) location only. See the Slater’s Restaurant Week menu below. See my review of Slater’s 50/50
UPDATE: These are my pictures from Slater’s 50/50 Restaurant week items that we ordered
Andrei’s Conscious Cuisine
Andrei’s Conscious Cuisine has a pretty impressive menu, I like the looks of the John Dory and Pumpkin Ravioli
The Winery Restaurant
This is a great Italian restaurants, very classy and authentic. I like their Restaurant Week choices.
Cucina Enoteca is offering a particularly good menu for Restaurant Week. I really like their grilled octopus and braised lamb ragu.
McCormick and Shmick’s
McCormick and Shmick’s is an all around great seafood restaurant and their Irvine Restaurant Week menu includes lobster.
