Claremont Restaurant Week kicks off today

Claremont launches its second restaurant week today (July 14).

Unlike some of those other restaurant “weeks,” this one actually does last a week, coming to a close on Sunday (July 20).

However, based on what we sampled at the kickoff event this past Thursday, we wish it were longer.

During Claremont Restaurant Week, participating restaurants are offering specially-priced prix fixe menus or other specials.

Many of the restaurants are offering both lunch and dinner deals.

Some of the treats we enjoyed at the kickoff included: A delicious artichoke heart salad from the Last Drop Cafe, a flavorful ahi tuna tower appetizer from The Orchard at DoubleTree by Hilton and a savory vegetable paella from Euro Café.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

With nearly two dozen restaurants participating, there’s plenty to choose from, so head to Claremont and grab those deals.
