Thomas Keller, Gordon Ramsay, Celestino Drago, Wolgang Puck...just a few of the renown local chefs preparing to showcase their culinary creations during DineLA Restaurant Week. This is our annual opportunity to experience the city's finest restaurants at a 'discount.' Participating restaurants, nearly 300 city-wide, will offer three-course, specially priced, prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus.
The 12-day event will run Monday, January 21 through Friday, February 1, 2013
Restaurants have individually chosen one of the following price categories for the event:
Lunches*: $15, $20 or $25
Dinners*: $25, $35 or $45
*Prices exclude beverages, tax and gratuity.
This year the event has teamed up with Instagram - Diners are invited to show off their foodie photography skills as part of the “Dine. Snap. Win.” contest. Snap a picture of your favorite Restaurant Week dish and post with the hashtag #dineLA for a chance to win an exclusive dining prize. Diners may submit multiple entries from participating restaurants. At the end of Restaurant Week, the 25 most popular eateries with dishes featured on Instagram will win 2013 Diner’s Choice.
Stacey Sun, dineLA director for the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (LA Tourism) asserts, “When it comes to food, we feel a picture is worth a thousand words.”
DineLA is a rare chance to explore world-renown restaurants at an uncommonly good value.
A sentiment shared by many of our best-known restaurateurs:
“LA is a microcosm of the entire country; a melting pot of diverse cultures and cuisines in close knit neighborhoods, all waiting to be discovered by visitors and locals alike. Our unique Angeleno style of dining will be highlighted during DineLA Restaurant Week, and we look forward to introducing new customers to LA restaurants...”
- Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger (“Too Hot Tamales”)
