“We’re very excited to be part of Dine Out Long Beach for the third consecutive year,” said Ali Kobessi, owner of Open Sesame in Belmont Shore. “Restaurant Week 2.0 is a great opportunity for us to showcase our lunch and dinner offerings to new and returning guests. The organizers have done a tremendous job in promoting the event, and we felt the registration fee, which includes all the advertising, marketing and public relations, was very affordable.”
Nearly 50 restaurants throughout the city will offer 2-option menus for breakfast and/or lunch starting at $10 and 3-option menus for dinner starting at $20. Some restaurants will also offer a shared menu where two guests can split an appetizer and dessert, but enjoy their own entrée. Others will do small plates and wine or beer pairings.
