DineLA Restaurant Week

09Jan08

To keep you up to par with the growing number of restaurants in Los Angeles, restaurants participating in DineLA Restaurant Week offer pre-fixed 3 course menus at an affordable price. This isn’t your regular ol laundry list of OK restaurants. Some of Los Angeles’ greatest chefs are coming out to support us poor folk! I urge you to check out at least 1 or 2 places during the 2 weeks (Jan 27-Feb1, Feb 3-8) and really appreciate the quality of food Los Angeles has to offer. Just make a reservation during the said weeks and let them know you’re coming in for the DineLA restaurant week set menu. Restaurants offer both lunch and/or dinner options.
