Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks is back for an 11th consecutive year Jan. 18-31, with a pandemic-inspired “Takeout Edition” featuring specially prepared curbside-friendly creations in three formats: Meals for One, Meals for Two, and Family Packs. 

Like years past, Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks will be two weeks of delectable, specially crafted menus that highlight the valley’s farm fresh bounty and many award-winning chefs’ culinary creativity. 

The Ballard Inn Gathering Table

This year, participating restaurants will create menus that will work for locals to enjoy at home, and come in a variety of price points. Unlike years past, when participating restaurants followed a prix fixe format (e.g. three courses for $20.20 plus tax & tip in 2020) prices will vary by participating establishment in 2021.

“It’s no secret that the restaurant industry has been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, yet they continue to forge ahead driven in large part by the love of their staff and passion for what they do,” said Shelby Sim, president and CEO of Visit the Santa Ynez Valley. “Dining and the enjoyment of great local food is an experience unto itself, and in a year that has deprived us of so many other experiences, we felt it was paramount that Restaurant Weeks return in 2021 albeit with a takeout twist.”

Where wine country meets dine country, Santa Ynez Valley and neighboring wineries and tasting rooms will also participate with many offering takeout tasting flights and special wine deals. 

“Our wine is world class, so we want to be sure locals have the opportunity to enjoy it with their takeout meals or standalone this year,” said Sim.
