Invitations are in the mail to the restaurants that have earned a major award from the Southern California Restaurant Writers.
These restaurants will be honored at the 42nd annual Awards Banquet of the Writers to be held at the Center Club in Costa Mesa on Monday March 21.
Each year the event recognizes restaurants whose standards of quality, service and value have been found to be of special merit.
Proceeds from the annual banquet go to the Doris Crandall Scholarship Program which has, through the years, provided scholarships to students in the culinary arts at Southern California Community Colleges including Orange Coast College, Harbor College, Riverside City College and San Bernardino Valley College.
One hundred per cent of all donations received are dedicated to the scholarship program.
The Banquet at the Center Club will open with a wine tasting followed by a five course dinner. Then the individuals and restaurants selected will receive their awards.
The Center Club Orange County is located at 650 Town Center Drive, Garden Level in Costa Mesa with valet parking.
Advance paid reservations are required for this event.
