ENCINITAS — For the first time, Encinitas is getting in on the foodie Nirvana that is Restaurant Week. Once confined to San Diego, Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association announced that it would host an inaugural Restaurant Week Jan. 18 through Jan. 24. The premise of Restaurant Week is simple: Restaurants across a city — or in the case of Encinitas, along Coast Highway 101 — feature limited-time offers or fixed-price meal deals to showcase some of their best dishes.
Three-course dinners are as low as $20 at some locations, but none more than $50. In Encinitas, such popular restaurants as Bier Garden, Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria, east Village Asian Diner, Lobster West, Lumberyard Tavern and UNION Kitchen and Tap are getting in on the action this week.
