In the land where the surf is killer and the local spirit is warm, it’s the eateries that provide the sustenance for Ocean Beach’s thriving beachside culture. From hidden cafes where your name is remembered to five-star dining spots where you get the upscale treatment, Ocean Beach offers a bit of everything.
For the first week of December, over 20 key restaurants will take part in the inaugural Ocean Beach Restaurant Week. From Monday, December 3 to Friday, December 7, San Diego can explore old favorites and new gems during the five days of feasting by the sea.
The restaurants will offer prix-fixe menus served for breakfast, lunch or dinner along with other discounts. There are no tickets, no passes and no shortage of options, but reservations are recommended.
