Seventh Annual Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Week, Jan. 22-28, Showcases Local Flavors from Creative Chefs at a Once-A-Year Value


For seven delicious days, dozens of SYV wine country restaurants will offer three-course meals for just $20.17 as part of California Restaurant Month

(SANTA YNEZ VALLEY, Calif.)— The Santa Ynez Valley is known as much for its agricultural roots and culinary creations as its world-class wines, and there may be no better time to enjoy this foodie haven than during seven delicious days in January. The Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Week returns for a seventh consecutive year, Jan. 22-28, tempting food lovers with the once-a-year opportunity to savor three-course tasting menus from some of the Valley’s top dining establishments for just $20.17.

Blessed with an abundance of imaginative local chefs and steeped in the farm-to-table movement, the Santa Ynez Valley tempts all year long with unique and diverse cuisine that ranges from traditional Scandinavian feasts to more contemporary and innovative fare. But for seven days each year, Restaurant Week presents a rare value to celebrate the food and wine pairings that have made this region an under-the-radar gem of California Wine Country. Representing each of the Santa Ynez Valley’s six distinct communities, two dozen restaurants — from the region’s emerging establishments to long-time favorites — will participate in Restaurant Week this year.

In addition to the offerings of the Valley’s restaurants, select Santa Ynez Valley wineries will offer wine and small bite pairings in their tasting rooms for $20.17. And special lodging deals are available at numerous hoteliers throughout the Valley.

Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Week menus do not include tax, tip or beverages, and reservations are strongly encouraged. For the latest updates on Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Week, including menus and dining hours, visit
