LOS ANGELES: Time to loosen your belts, foodies. It’s time for dineLA’s Restaurant Week, the 12-day dining event, showcasing Los Angeles as a premier dining destination and highlighting the diversity of culinary experiences LA has to offer. Presented by the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board and in partnership with American Express®, dineLA’s Restaurant Week will this year take place July 15-26, and includes more than 330 Los Angeles County restaurants, from Southeast Asian fare to traditional steak house, rustic farm-to-table to white table cloth, most of which offering prix-fixe deals.
As a testament to Los Angeles’ vibrant and ever-evolving dining scene, some of the city’s most sought-after restaurants have joined the record-setting list of over 330 participating in this bi-annual dining event. Noteworthy newcomers include Silverlake gastropub Black Hogg, Hollywood hotspot littlefork, Los Feliz stand-out MESSHALL and Abbott Kinney darling Willie Jane.
These new additions join Los Angeles’ most acclaimed chefs in showcasing the city’s best cuisine. DineLA’s Restaurant Week chefs Bryant Ng of The Spice Table, Suzanne Goin of Lucques, Tavern and the Larder at Burton Way, and from season five of Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters,” Neal Fraser of BLD and Sang Yoon of Father’s Office and Lukshon, join with hundreds more in offering special prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus at three different price points: lunch menus for $15,$20 or $25; and dinner menus for $25, $35 or $45.
“We are looking forward to being part of dineLA’s summer restaurant week. It’s such an incredible time to dine in Los Angeles,” said Ricardo Zarate, Executive Chef/Owner of Mo-chica, Paiche and Picca. “Chefs have world-class produce at their fingertips—or growing on-site like we do at Post& Beam—which means more room to play with seasonal ingredients. I’m excited to celebrate with our regulars and welcoming new faces during dineLA Restaurant Week."
"Residents and travelers from near and far can explore LA’s culinary landscape during dineLA’s Restaurant Week," said Stacey Sun, dineLA Director. "The summer schedule lends itself to a wide range of dining experiences—from poolside to patio, oceanfront to garden—all at an incredible value.”
