Visit Concord is excited to present the 2nd Annual Comfort Food Week in Concord California! Our Restaurant Week is a part of California Restaurant Month, created by Visit California. Concord restaurants will create a special dish or menu item with the theme of comfort food. Some restaurants will also offer specials deals or discounts. These deals can include getting a free dessert with a meal, 10% off the special menu item, and buy one get one free coupons.

Concord Restaurant Week will take place January 18th -27th during a slow time for most restaurants. This event will highlight all the amazing restaurants Concord has to offer, while giving people a reason to go out when they otherwise wouldn’t. With over 30 restaurants participating this year, the Concord restaurant scene will be featured greatly. When dining out that week, you can find anything like donuts, burgers, tap takeovers, cookie dough and other delicious options!

These restaurants can be found all around Concord including downtown, midtown, the diamond district and the monument.

Step into the Monument District of Concord, and you will be hit with the smell so intense your stomach will be growling instantly. With a high demographic of Spanish culture in this area of Concord, there are Mexican Markets on every corner. Dive into fresh authentic ingredients you can usually only get in Mexico and take your taste buds to a whole new level. Fresh carne asada burritos, tacos, tortas and so much more can be found on this bustling street in the center of Concord.

The heart of downtown takes the diverse culinary scene to a whole new level with something different on every corner. You can walk around the square on a Tuesday or Thursday and grab fresh produce from the farmers market and street vendors. You can also grab Italian, Thai, Mexican, German, American, Chinese or Peruvian food. With this much diversity, you can never go wrong visiting downtown Concord.
