Irvine Holds Its Restaurant Week Starting Jan. 14, Runs Till Jan. 20

But Irvine's is just before that. It actually starts this Friday and does not have that many restaurants participating.
Though the website optimistically phrases it as "nearly a dozen restaurants," I count exactly nine.
- 6ix Park Grill
- Waterfalls at The Atrium Hotel
- Elements 102
- The Melting Pot
- Il Fornaio
But remember what I praised the Costa Mesa Restaurant Month for? Ease of use? Information on the prix-fixe lunch or dinner menus at a flick of the fingertips on the main page, where one can find it?
No such luck here. Every restaurant on Irvine's restaurant-week site has a link that opens up a separate PDF with the menus. Oh, well, at least there aren't that many of them to begin with.
