Currant American Brasserie Restaurant The Sofia Hotel

Epicures, gourmets, bon vivants, and gastronomes, listen up: Are you ready to eat your way around San Diego County?

The lauded San Diego Restaurant Week is returning! From September 15 through the 20th, you’ll be able to experience better than 180 restaurants from across San Diego County on the cheap—and the Sofia Hotel’s very own Currant American Brasserie is one of the standouts.

The Lowdown

San Diego Restaurant Week, which residents and visitors alike mouthwateringly anticipate twice a year, has a simple conceit: Participating eateries representing the full range of the county’s geographic and culinary diversity offer special discount prix-frixe menus. You don’t need to buy a ticket; you simply check the Restaurant Week directory to find the showcased cafes, grills, and watering holes—then show up for an affordable and delicious multi-course meal!

The key to properly preparing is to identify your top choices in advance and then make reservations as soon as possible.

Currant American Brasserie

And one of your top choices for Restaurant Week should surely be Currant American Brasserie, a fixture of the Sofia’s grand ground floor. Inspired equally by the French-bistro tradition and America’s anything-goes culinary adventurism, Currant straddles the line between haute cuisine and laidback comfort. There’s no better place to relax and enjoy exquisite food and libations—all within the magnificent context of the historic Sofia Hotel.

For Restaurant Week, Currant is offering discounted lunch and dinner menus at $15 and $40, respectively—what a steal! Both well embody the French/American spirit of the outstanding Currant kitchen.

How about fig and bleu-cheese bruschetta or a decadently dressed wedge salad followed by croque monsieur or moules frites for lunch—concluded with a transcendent dessert such as the butterscotch gooey butter cake? Or, for dinner, maybe you’ll choose the Currant market salad along with asparagus risotto or cedar-plant roasted Verlasso salmon, then the vanilla bean crème brûlée.

Getting hungry yet? Come join us at Currant American Brasserie in the Sofia Hotel—and any of the other topnotch restaurants involved—and celebrate San Diego County’s great gustatory extravaganza.

But hurry and reserve a table today—they’ll fill up fast with all the Restaurant Week devotees!
