dineL.A. Restaurant Week is starting next Monday January 18 to Sunday January 31, 2016. The 14 day dining event takes place at over 300 restaurants throughout Los Angeles county. dineL.A. is partnering with OpenTable to donate $1 of every seated reservation that’s booked through our website to The Midnight Mission, a vital nonprofit organization that provides food, shelter and essential aid to those experiencing homelessness throughout the city.
Similar to Dine Out Vancouver, dineL.A. is a great opportunity for foodies to explore new restaurants. Diners can choose two options from lunch menus for $15, $20, or $25 or plan a night out on the town with dinner priced at $29, $39, and $49 per person for three options of their choice.
The complete list of participating restaurants includes returning favorites Tavern, The Little Door (Santa Monica and West Hollywood), and Water Grill (Downtown and Santa Monica) as well as delicious newcomers like Knuckle & Claw, Pizzeria Mozza, and Plant Food & Wine who promise to please the palate, while offering diners a 20% value on all menus. The comprehensive lineup allows guests to choose from a wide selection of cuisines and dining experiences at three price points.
dineL.A. Restaurant Week is brought to you by the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (L.A. Tourism). In addition to exciting lunch and dinner menus from over 300 restaurants, the program will also feature a new tier of experiential menus from the city’s top chefs via the Exclusive Series presented by Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express. Each restaurant will offer unique, specially priced menus starting at $95.
