The 14th annual San Diego Restaurant Week with over 180 participating eateries returns on Sunday and runs through Jan. 21.

Restaurants throughout San Diego County are offering prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus to encourage foodies to try their latest menus.

Three-course dinners range in price from $20 to $50 per person, and two-course lunch menus cost from $10 to $20.

Here are five restaurants to try at this year’s restaurant week:

  • Top of the Market on the embarcadero downtown is offering mesquite grilled Scottish Salmon, Parisian gnocchi and lobser, and seared New Bedford sea scallops.
  • The Bohemian Paris-themed Bleu Bohème in Kensington is cooking Provençal-marinated Duroc pork ribeye, Angus boeuf bourguignon, and saumon “royal” with fresh king salmon.
  • The Parc Bistro-Brasserie on Bankers Hill suggests wild mushroom ravioli for lunch and roasted trout almondine for dinner.
  • Galaxy Taco

    The Argyle Steakhouse at Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad is offering wild Ilse Scottish salmon, natural prime filet mignon and Brandt Farm prime hanger steak.

  • Popular Galaxy Taco in La Jolla Shores is listing six different entrees, including vegetable tamales mole blanco, carne asada ribeye and braised and roasted pork shoulder.

You can search online for all of the participating restaurants. And keep in mind that the week is often extended, giving you more opportunities to try new restaurants and menus.
