Visit California invites visitors to relish the Golden State's celebrated wine and food offerings this January during the fourth annual California Restaurant Month. Diners can expect dining opportunities across 40 destinations in California, including 11 first-time participants, making 2014 the largest California Restaurant Month to date.

"California is home to some of the most passionate, award-winning chefs on the globe who have a true talent for creating delicious cuisine using fresh, local ingredients," said Caroline Beteta, Visit California president and CEO. "Visitors in January can sample the state's inspiring culinary culture because California Restaurant Month allows visitors and locals alike the opportunity to discover why California is truly one of the world's best places to dine."

Throughout January 2014, California restaurants are offering special restaurant week or month-long dining promotions that feature gourmet prix-fixe menus, wine-pairing opportunities and more as part of this Visit California-led promotion. The 11 new destinations for 2014 are Amador County, Calaveras County, Catalina Island, Escondido, Gilroy, South Lake Tahoe, Manhattan Beach, Stockton, Suisun City, Ventura and Yosemite/Mariposa County.
