Chefs will be showing off their culinary skills and firing up their stoves and barbecues for San Diego Restaurant Week, which kicks off this Sunday. Behind the scenes, powering much of the action will be natural gas – a clean, affordable and abundant source of energy that thousands of local restaurants count on to cook food and provide ambiance.
More than 180 restaurants throughout San Diego County are participating in San Diego Restaurant Week. The event, now in its 14th year, runs Sunday, Sept. 23, through Sunday, Sept. 30.
Participating diners get exclusive two-and-three course, prix-fixe dinner menus for $20 - $50 per person depending on the restaurant. No passes, tickets or coupons are required but reservations are encouraged. A list of participating restaurants is available on the San Diego Restaurant Week website.
Natural Gas - Bringing the Heat to San Diego’s Restaurant Industry
Whether it’s basting, blanching, simmering, boiling, broiling, frying, baking, searing, grilling, sautéing, poaching or steaming – our natural gas system is bringing the heat to San Diego Restaurant Week.
Natural gas is what energizes the nighttime and fuels our restaurants. It’s a clean and affordable energy choice that about 21,000 local businesses rely on every day.
Restaurants kitchens depend on natural gas to power ovens, fryers, grills and stovetops. Nearly all the food served in most restaurants is cooked with natural gas. Chefs and restaurant owners love natural gas because it helps them deliver the best product at the best possible price. Keeping energy bills low keeps restaurants thriving.
