Calling Dining Aficionados: Silicon Valley Restaurant Week Starts Oct. 17

Participating restaurants are offering special three-course prix fix meals.

Mark your calendars, dining aficionados: Silicon Valley Restaurant Week is coming to a gourmet kitchen near you Oct. 17-24.

Participating restaurants—which range from Polish to Mexican cuisine—are offering three-course, prix fix dinners excluding beverages, tax and gratuity. Prices range from around $20 to $40, depending on the restaurant.

Los Gatos has five: California Café, Forbes Mill Steakhouse, Los Gatos Brewing Company, Palacio and Wine Cellar.

Organizers say they want to draw more attention to Silicon Valley, which they deem a hidden gem in the dining world: a mix of ethnic cuisine with fresh California ingredients. In the past, restaurants have seen up to a 40 percent spike in customers during the week. 

Reserve a spot through Opentable.com.
