Dine LA starts today. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to try as many restaurants as LA has to offer in the next two weeks. Lucky for you, the restaurants make it pretty easy for you to accomplish this task.
How does it work
Well, a bunch of restaurants opt into one of three dining categories and present a specially priced three - course meal for lunch and/or dinner. Diners (aka: you) choose from three choices for each course including appetizer, entrée and dessert. Prices and meal periods vary by restaurant and meal period and exclude beverages, tax and gratuity. Check out their website for a list of participating restaurants and to find out what deals they have to offer.
So try a new restaurant in LA. There are so many to choose from. If you're still not convinced, you can read about my adventures from the last DineLA.
Here are a few of my favorite participating restaurants:
- Little Next Door
- Susan Feniger's STREET
- The Bazaar at SLS and (see some pics from my trip to The Bazaar)
It's RESTAURANT WEEK in LA! That means you can try all those shmancy restaurants that you read about in the foodie blogs that you follow without having to take out a mortgage to do so. There is a smorgasbord of prix-fixe menus to choose from, ranging from $16 lunches to $44 dinners. Some restaurants have both lunch and dinner options and some only have one or the other, so check out dineLA's website for options. Restaurants are showcasing their best food for a fraction of the price so it's a pretty sweet deal. You can even try Jose Andres' Bazaar, whose innovative tapas inspired my very own "iPhone mit iPhone."
In all seriousness, The Bazaar at SLS is an amazing dining experience, whether you get the traditional tapas or the gastromolecular magic that they spin there. This is their inspired take on Lox & Bagels:
Everything they do makes me laugh because it's so clever & fun -- so treat yourself to a fine meal without cracking that rainy day piggy bank fund.
