Where To Eat During Dine Huntington Week~ October 12th- 19th

One of the many reasons to be lucky to live here is the world class diverse dining that the Huntington/Five Harbor area has to offer.  And Dine Huntington, October 12th – 19th, is the perfect time to experience amazing 3 course prix-fixe meals for only $27.95 (Saturday till 7 pm).

 DineHuntington

So don’t make dinner this week…make reservations!

The only problem is with so many restaurants participating it will be tough to decide where to go.  It’s going to be very tempting for me to go to the ones that I frequent like HonuMill Pond HouseDoppioBravo NaderBesitoVitaeOld FieldsPrimeAlmarcoCassisTing (to name a few).  These restaurants are outstanding and I highly recommend if you haven’t been before.  This week though, I may take the opportunity to hit ones I haven’t been to like Nisen110, Neraki, or Cafe Buenos Aires.

dinehuntingtonrw14If you can’t get a dinner reservation at your number one pick, try booking a table for lunch. It might be easier to get in and you’ll enjoy the same food and ambiance (plus you’ll have an excuse to get away from the office for a civilized lunch for a change).

Please leave a comment below with your favorite restaurant that is participating in DINE Huntington Week and why you feel lucky to eat there.

Bon Appetit :)
