Annual Event Features 50 Local Restaurants
The cost is $350 for single restaurants and $300 per location for restaurant groups that have multiple locations. The event takes place Feb. 25-March 3. As of mid-January, 40 restaurants had signed up to participate and when finalized, more than 50 restaurants will be a part of this event.
”We’re very excited by the number of restaurants who have already registered,” said Elizabeth Borsting, founder of Dine Out Long Beach. ”We have many returning eateries and several new ones, such as Pier 76 Fish Grill, Claires at the Museum, Gallaghers Pub and SuperMex, who have never participated in Dine Out Long Beach.
“Were also excited about the new restaurants that have opened this yearPietris Bakery, Plunge at the Ocean Club, Crepe Crafters and Lashers Kitchenwho are eager to be part of the Long Beach restaurant community through Dine Out Long Beach.”
Borsting added that its also the one time of year when the entire dining community comes together to showcase the best of Long Beachs culinary offerings, from all-vegan dining at Steamed Cuisine to dine and Duffy with London Boat Rentals, which offers self-navigated Duffy boat excursions through the canals of Naples.
For diners, restaurants offer two-course brunches and lunches starting at $10 and/or three-course dinners or small plates starting at $20. There are no tickets to purchase or passes required as guests experience the restaurants–and their settings–first-hand.
