[Santiago Dining Week]

[Santiago Dining Week]

The inaugural Santiago Dining Week took place from March 2-15.  Over 25 restaurants participated, offering three course lunch and/or dinner menus for CLP $12,000 and $18,000.  Dining week (usually two weeks long) is an opportunity for restaurants to showcase their best dishes and for people to try new places at a reasonable price.  Eight years ago, I was a frequent customer during the dining week in Los Angeles and ate at many restaurants that I might never have visited otherwise.  These places were usually the creme de la creme of Los Angeles dining scene, and showcased their best dishes.  I always had a valuable foodie experience.
