AVALON— Food lovers will have the opportunity to try some of Avalon’s best eats and sips at special pricing during restaurant week, June 4 through 10. Now in its eighth year, the foodie celebration this year includes 18 of Avalon’s restaurants dishing up a variety of specially created menus throughout the week. Some restaurants are promoting a featured dish and/or beverage and others, including Avalon Grille, will be offering a prix fixe menu for the week.
Diners are also invited to participate in a contest for the chance to win a $100 Catalina Island Gift Certificate. To enter, post your dine out photos on social media during the week with the hashtag #avalonrestaurantweek.
Avalon Restaurant Week will also have something for those who aren’t able to make it to the island between June 4 and 10. There will be a digital version of the event called “Taste and Tour” showcasing these dining establishments along with a few special featured food items for the week. Each day, several restaurants will be promoted with a short video and/or photos which will be posted on all Love Catalina’s Social Media Channels. The food items being promoted and videos will also be linked to the Avalon Restaurant Week microsite at lovecatalina.com/restaurantweek/.
