Alright friends, it's that time again! A time when some of the best restaurants in Los Angeles and Orange County come together for a two-week dining event that'll knock our socks off!
When is dineLA Restaurant Week? dineLA Restaurant Week takes place January 25 to 30, 2009 and February 1 to 6, 2009. What are restaurants offering during dineLA Restaurant Week? Participating restaurants will opt into one of two dining categories and present a selection of specially priced three-course meals for lunch and dinner. Diners will be able to choose from three choices for each course. Prices are per person and exclude beverages, tax and gratuity. Lunch, Dinner Deluxe Dining:$16, $26 Premier Dining:$22, $34 Fine Dining:$28, $44 How do I experience a restaurant participating in dineLA Restaurant Week? Contact the restaurant directly. Due to the popularity of this event, advance reservations are strongly encouraged, but walk-ins are appreciated. There is no guarantee that walk-in guests will be accommodated. A full list of participating dining establishments is here but some of my personal favorites include Gordon Ramsay's at the London, Comme Ca (but go for lunch because it can get noisy), La Cachette, Katsuya, Ocean Seafood, Roy's, Ruth's Chris, STK, and The Bazaar at Jose Andres (to check out the SLS Hotel). Exclusively for AmEx cardholders, you can get a jump on dineLA Restaurant Week by booking your table between January 1–10 at participating restaurants. Reservations open to the general public January 11. Happy eating! dineLA Restaurant Week website
