What is Dine LA restaurant Week?
Dine LA is a 15-day event that showcases premier and fine dining locales throughout the city. You can catch Restaurant Week twice a year as you experience the culinary diversity that LA has to offer, including a vast array of regional cuisines and signature chef styles.
This year’s celebration features over 400 restaurants in the lineup, which means there’s something absolutely everyone can enjoy. With delicious menus designed especially for this event, this is your opportunity to try something new or relive a favorite within the Los Angeles area.
Dates, Times, and Prices
This year’s Dine LA Restaurant Week takes place from Friday, July 12th to Friday the 26th, giving participants over two full weeks of delicious eats. Best of all, this event costs nothing outside of the price of your food. There are no tickets to worry about or entry fees to any of the restaurants on the list.
What you do pay depends on your choice. Restaurants serve a special menu for both lunch and dinner, each with various options for portion size. The prices break down as follows:
- Lunch – two or more courses: $15, $20, $25, and $35
- Dinner – three or more courses: $29, $39, $49, and $59
- Dinner – five or more course tasting menu: $99 and up
Keep in mind that these prices are for food only. They do not include drinks, taxes, or gratuity. Prices and times depend on the location, which means your restaurant of choice might vary slightly. To make the most of Dine LA, check with the location first to make sure you’re getting the menu you want.
Finally, there’s parking. It’s always recommended that you take a public transport when possible, but you might have to pay for parking depending on the location. All in all, that’s a lot of food for a fair price here in the city.
How to Make the Most of Dine LA
The easiest way to pick out a restaurant is to use the search function on the event’s website. You can sort locations by lunch, dinner, cuisine style, and neighborhood. Each restaurant on the list shows what their price is for both meals along with where they’re located and what type of food they serve.
The website also allows you to view the special Dine LA menus offered by each restaurant and book your reservation via Open Table. With over 400 locations on the list, there’s too many to name in this article. However, restaurants range from 1 Kitchen by Chris Cray all the way to Ziran at The LA Grand Hotel Downtown.
As for cuisine, everyone in LA knows that the city is a hotbed for anything your taste buds desire. Regional, stylistic, classic, and fusion cuisines are all on the menu. Here’s a summed-up list of what you can choose from:
- American (new and classic)
- Asian Fusion
- And so much more
Being LA, there are also several options for varying dietary restrictions. Vegan and vegetarian meals are in abundance here, but you’ll also find specialty dishes that accommodate allergies. Gluten-free, shellfish-free, and even lactose intolerant options are all available. Make sure to contact your restaurants of choice to ensure they can accommodate your needs.
Answers to FAQ
The number one question most people ask is, “Will I need a reservation?” The answer is no. Walk-ins are always welcome. However, this is a popular event and you should expect every restaurant on the list to be as crowded as possible. It is highly recommended that you make a reservation so you can enjoy the restaurants of your choice.
While you’re dining, keep an eye out for drink specials. Most locations offer discounts on wine, beer, and spirits to pair with your meal. While they do cost extra, everyone loves a bargain.
If a restaurant you’re looking at doesn’t feature their menu or a reservation option yet, don’t panic. You can stay up to date with notifications by entering your email on the event website. That way, you’ll be the first to know when they update their offerings.
Another minor detail to consider is that menus are subject to change based on the availability of ingredients. Restaurants in Los Angeles like to use seasonal vegetables and spices to create a fresh, delicious meal for each customer. Calling ahead will help you avoid any confusion.
