Oakland Restaurant Week Returns for 2021

  |     |   Lifestyle

Oakland Restaurant Week is back from January 7-18, 2021. Oakland Restaurant Week gets upgraded to Oakland Restaurant (and More) Week to promote all the businesses who contribute to Oakland’s culinary fabric. Unlike past years, there isn’t a prix fixe format, and restaurants are free to offer whatever deals they like. And it’s also not just restaurants — Oakland is expanding the week to include other types of food businesses, including pop-ups, caterers, and wineries. We’ve rounded up a few ORW specials in the Jack London District, just steps from your life at Orion at Brooklyn Basin.
