January is known as slow month in the restaurant business, and hence, is why the annual  "Dine About Town," event is back — but things are a little different this year. First, a name change, "Restaurant Week," which starts today and runs through January 30 — is offering diners 10 days to visit as many of the 100-plus restaurants on the list as they want.

Much like years past, diners choose to reserve a spot through OpenTable at a participating restaurant for lunch ($25, two-courses) or dinner ($45, three-courses). They're also offering something new this year called a "discovery" menu at certain restaurants, which will pair food and drinks ($85).

If you've participated in "Dine About Town" in the past you're probably noticing the price increase (about $10 from previous years); Eater SF also notes that many of the restaurants that are new to this year's lineup (AQ, Bourbon Steak, Hog & Rocks) are only offering the "discovery" menus, and they note the new driving force behind the changes: the Golden Gate Restaurant Association. 

Regardless of the changes, the event still provides a nice opportunity to visit that restaurant you've been meaning to; you can peruse the participating restaurants and their menus on the Restaurant Week site

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
