2021 Sacramento Restaurant Week: What you need to know

Support local small businesses in need of a boost amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento Restaurant Week has returned for 2021 with special deals and meals from Friday, June 4 to Sunday, June 20. 

The California Restaurant Association's 5th annual food festivity will look different from previous years, and last much longer than a week, but this year participation is actually more accessible. 

Instead of fancy menus, special farm-to-fork dishes or codes to unlock secret menu items like in the past, 2021 Sacramento Restaurant Week will have a gift card promotion, menu specials and an exclusive gift. As always, there will also be amazing food and local flavors. 

People interested in supporting local small businesses hit hard by the pandemic can purchase a gift card at CraveSac.com to a favorite local eatery and get a 10% discount on your purchase.

"Some places can’t open up full-time because they don't have enough staff and they just didn’t need to focus on some sort of special event," explained Jon Modrow, managing partner of Bottle and Barlow barbershop and bar in Sacramento and the vice president of The California Restaurant Association's Sacramento Chapter. 

Modrow pointed to the worker shortage as one reason to switch things up this year, so as not to burden restaurants but to still help with relaunching the Greater Sacramento restaurant scene. And after a long year and a half, help was needed.

"Sacramento restaurant week is an invitation by us to let you know that it’s time to come back and that we’re ready for you," he explained. "We're trying to incentivize that, this with a great deal, but restaurants still get the full ticket. We're just looking to rejuvenate and recover Sacramento to the dining scene that it was before and we're excited to do that, but we can't do it without sharing it with people."
