#ForkYeah! Long Beach residents and visitors alike are in for a treat as dozens of local restaurants, pop-up chefs and specialty food retailers will offer value-oriented menus and specials when Dine LBC – Long Beach Restaurant Week returns August 4 – 12, 2018.
New this year, two local chefs will host pop-up events, and the Long Beach Water Department will host a Blue Crawl Tasting Tour of six restaurants participating in the Certified Blue Restaurant Water Efficiency Program, with transportation provided by the Big Red Bus. The Long Beach Water Department is a proud sponsor of Dine LBC.

- Thursday – Saturday, August 9-11: Chef AC Boral will be presenting six Kamayan Dinner Pop-ups, two seatings each evening – $35
Founder and organizer Terri Henry, who brought restaurant week to Long Beach in 2014, said that in addition to encouraging local and surrounding “foodies” to enjoy what the expanding Long Beach culinary community has to offer, Dine LBC events support the local economy and put “butts in seats” of our valued restaurants and specialty food establishments.
“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 experiences to this annual event year after year. This year we’re even taking ‘dog friendly’ one step further by encouraging restaurants with patios to offer a special menu – just for our furry friends!”
Dine LBC has partnered with the free mobile app Kynbo to reward diners visiting restaurants during the event week with rewards when diners are searching for participating restaurants and menus on the app.
