Foodies grab your portable devices and punch in www.discoverLosAngeles.com/dineLA to make your reservations for the biggest culinary event of the winter as dineLA restaurant returns January 21. The two-week culinary bonanza features celebrity chefs and restaurants throughout Los Angeles.
The twice-yearly dining event (an extra bonus week was held last summer) runs from Jan. 21–Feb.1, 2013, and showcases specially-priced $15, $20, and $25 lunch menus and $25, $35, and $45 dinner menus from hundreds of our most compelling restaurants.
“I am excited to be a part of dineLA’s 2013 Restaurant Week for the first time with my new English gastropub, The Parish, in the heart of Downtown LA. It is an essential event for the dining community in Los Angeles, where exposure to the foodie public is the talk of the town,” says executive Chef Casey Lane of The Parish. “I am also thrilled that dineLA is bringing so many people to the up-and-coming Downtown LA neighborhood. There is so much for people to discover here and dineLA’s Restaurant Week is the perfect excuse, a delicious one at that.”
For the first time ever, diners are invited to flaunt their foodie photography skills as part of the “Dine. Snap. Win.” contest on http://instagram.com/dinela/. All you have to do is shoot a picture of your food during Restaurant Week and post with the hashtag #dineLA. You can submit as many entries from participating restaurants as you like. At the end of Restaurant Week, the 25 most popular eateries with dishes featured on Instagram will win the 2013 Diner’s Choice title.
“The Instagram contest adds a new interactive layer to the program, allowing the fans themselves to tell the story of dineLA's Restaurant Week and LA’s exciting culinary scene,” said Stacey Sun, dineLA director for the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (LA Tourism). “When it comes to food, we feel a picture is worth a thousand words.”
A word of warning, tables feel up fast, especially for the winter session, so hurry up and make your reservations (your LA Travel Diva Examiner and Richard have already filled out dining cards). For a full list of the more than 250 participating restaurants go to www.discoverLosAngeles.com/dineLA.
