After years of playing second fiddle to L.A.’s dining scene, Long Beach has taken its place in the culinary spotlight and launched its very own Restaurant Week, this year from March 22 – 28, 2015 .   At Eat LBC, they’ve pulled out all the corks to showcase Long Beach and its many spectacular restaurants, cafes, and bistros.  From Bixby Knolls to Belmont Shore, the East Village to Naples Island, to surrounding neighborhoods, this is a celebration of global cuisines for both locals and visitors alike.  It’s an invitation to break out of that culinary rut and try a restaurant for the first time or revisit a favorite.  Each restaurant offers a prix fixe menu priced at $26 and $38 per person for dinner with wine pairing options at select locations.

So reserve a communal table for girls’ night out, impress that special someone with a romantic dinner for two, or catch up with an old friend over eclectic meal at a sidewalk café.  The possibilities are endless.  The only meal planning you’ll need to worry about is which restaurant to try next. Eat LBC – it’s what you’ve been craving!

What makes Eat LBC so appetizing?

Well, for starters…

  • They are expecting to have over 75 restaurants for you to choose from, including Zagat and Gayot-rated restaurants to local fromageries and gourmet delis.  We’re equal opportunity eaters, not food snobs.
  • Things that taste this good only happen once a year and for one-week only – hence the name Restaurant Week.
  • Three course dinner menus range from meals served on white table cloths to more casual settings.  There’s something for every taste and budget.
  • Get to know your local chefs, sommeliers, cheesemongers, bakers and cupcakers, mixologists, sandwich artists, et al.
