DineL.A. is the restaurant initiative of the Los Angeles Tourist Bureau DiscoverLA. For a long time, they’ve done twice yearly Restaurant Weeks, a promotion that allows restaurants to introduce themselves to new diners and remind lapsed regulars of what they’re missing. This time around, more than 250 restaurants are participating in Restaurant Week, which runs March 1-14.
Stacey Sun is VP of Member and Partner Services of Discover LA. She says, “As far as restaurants and their approach with dineL.A. this time around, I think overall, many of the restaurants are hopeful that dineL.A. will continue to drive much needed business to their restaurants, especially with the recent reopening of outdoor dining. Some restaurants are being more creative with their menus as far as offering brunch vs. the traditional lunch and dinner offerings, which is fun. Many are offering alcoholic drinks as part of their dineL.A. menus. And a few restaurants are offering meals for 2 or family meals.”
The prices vary from a low of $15 to $20 for a set lunch — to a high of $55 to $65 for set dinner menus.
In addition, it’s the first time dineL.A. is taking place during International Women’s Month, and there are a lot of hardworking restaurant staff in that category to celebrate.
Some of the women-led restaurants include:
Clementine is doing a Deluxe Afternoon Tea Package for $35.
All Day Baby serves lunch for $25.
Casa Vega is doing lunch and dinner, which includes a margarita.
Socalo has a large selection for both lunch at $20 and dinner at $45.
Rossoblu is offering a beautiful meal for $55.
The Original Farmers’ Market is doing a $15 lunch special that involves 13 restaurants, including DuPars.
Other places Evan Kleiman personally would go:
Charcoal in Venice is offering a generous dinner menu for $55.
