Restaurants and the Recession

Hosted by

Lesley Balla is the editor of the online newsletter Tasting Table LA, which launches in February.  Support L.A. area restaurants by dining out during DineLA's restaurant week.

A number of L.A. restaurants are having recession specials. Friday evenings at Edison get a 35¢ martini with a free cup of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. Eric Greenspan of The Foundry on Melrose is offering a guarantee. If you don't, you'll receive a gift certificate for another one. Campanile has soup-kitchen menu on Wednesdays; three courses for $22.
