Dine LA Restaurant Week is a concept that started to entice diners to try out new restaurants and revisit old favorites by offering 2-3 course prix fixe meals at lunch or dinner (or both) ranging from $16-$44. The symbols $-$$$ denotes the prix fixe menu price on the website; one $ denotes $16 lunches, $26 dinners, two $$ denotes $22 lunches, $34 dinners, and three $$$ means $28 lunches and $44 dinners.

Last time there was a restaurant week I tried Taste in West Hollywood and loved it! Usually the week comes to a different city around the year and you only get a once yearly opportunity to take advantage of this experience, but this year with restaurant businesses eager to build business with new clientele (as well as get back regulars), Los Angeles is hosting a second week this year!

The dates for this event are from October 4-9 and 11-16, so except for two Saturday nights, you can dine out in a different restaurant everyday for nearly two weeks! My favorite restaurants are all participating, from Grace to Michael’s. Whether you want to try something exotic like Chaya or something classic like Fleming’s steakhouse, you can satiate your craving. Locations cover the greater Los Angeles area, from Manhattan Beach to Glendale.

There must be at least one restaurant in your neighborhood that you would want to try (or two or three).
