Here are four reasons not to sit on the bench during #BRW24:

1. Crush Quality Cuisine

Create your dining dream team from BRW Hall of Famers like Julia’s, Zino, Berkeley Boathouse, Gather, Riva Cucina, La Marcha, Agrodolce and other standouts.

2. Try Somewhere New

Restaurant Week rising stars include Bear's Lair (just reopened!), Noria Wines, Dumpling Time on Fourth Street, Homeroom Berkeley, elaichi co., The Grazing Company, and a Berkeley hall of famer that's new to #BRW, Sconehenge Bakery & Cafe. Now that's a deep bench!

3. Dive into Menu Madness

All menus will be posted on individual restaurant pages by March 15th here. Scroll down to specific restaurants, click the blue DETAILS tab, and get ready to start salivating.

4. Catch a Culinary Crossover

This year, several libation specialists are expected to join #BRW24 for creative crossover pairings with restaurants. More coming soon on these new collabs!
