The 15th Annual San Diego Restaurant Week returns on Sunday, Jan. 20, with more than 180 participating restaurants.

The popular event, which extends through the following Sunday, Jan. 27, gives San Diego foodies an opportunity to try new restaurants throughout the region.

“Join more than 150,000 diners on an eight-day culinary tour throughout the diverse and thriving food culture of San Diego,” according to the San Diego chapter of the California Restaurant Association, which organizes the event.

Participating restaurants will offer three-course prix-fixe dinner menus for $20, $30, $40 or $50 per person and two-course prix-fixe lunch menus for $10, $15 or $20 per person.

A complete list of restaurants, sorted by location and cuisine, is available online.

Organizers note that restaurants fill up as the week progresses and recommend reservations on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday during the event.
