Dine LBC’s Long Beach Restaurant Week returns Aug. 3-11, featuring special menus and pricing at nearly 50 local restaurants and retailers.

Restaurant Week locations offer multi-course meals and special deals set at one of six price points: $5, $15, $25, $35, $45, $55 or $65. An $85 Chef Special Menu will also be offered by several fine dining restaurants.

“Over the years, Dine LBC has evolved from a typical ‘restaurant week’ to more of an all-inclusive ‘culinary week’,” said founder and organizer Terri Henry. “We’ve continued to add unique food-related activities and experiences to this annual event year after year.”

A “Dine. Snap. Share.” Instagram contest will be offered where a random diner will receive two nights at the Westin Long Beach and dinner at the new Navy Proof restaurant.

Participating restaurants, menus, food companies and offers can be found at www.DineLBC.com.

Before Restaurant Week officially begins Saturday, Aug. 3, the event first kicked off Tuesday with five top Long Beach chefs preparing and serving a meal at Long Beach Rescue Mission. Chefs from The Attic, L’Opera Ristorante, PigBurd, Meant to Be Cafe, and Hof’s Hut treated over 200 homeless men, women and children to a multi-course gourmet lunch.
