I'm officially excited (and hungry)! DineLA is back, taking over LA's restaurant scene from October 2-7 and 9-14! You know the drill: Hundreds of Los Angeles' restaurants are offering prix-fixe menus for lunch and dinner, often filled with their best-selling dishes. The menus are tiered in three price levels designed to meet the budgets of every Angeleno:
DineLA's participating restaurants range from L.A.'s culinary cream of the crop – think Craft, Fig & Olive (Obama's fave) and Scarpetta, just to name a few – to more casual offerings such as Casa Vega and Hostaria del Piccolo. There are literally hundreds of restaurants to choose from but only so many meals in a day, so make your reservations accordingly -- and fast!
But wait, there's more: A list of locally-lauded hotels have signed on to offer "Stay & DineLA" packages, where you can stay one night in a guest room and enjoy a meal at a participating dineLA restaurant. Book a reservation and a night's stay at LA Market in the J.W. Marriott, Scarpetta in the Montage Hotel Beverly Hills, or Asia de Cuba in the Mondrian Hotel, among others. Consider it a mini stay-cation, or just a really fabulous place to crash if you have too much vino.
