For the past 10 years, dineL.A. has taken over Los Angeles with it’s delicious two-week long event. Twice a year, dineL.A. “showcases Los Angeles as a premier dining destination while highlighting the diversity of culinary experiences L.A. has to offer.” In addition, you get amazing deals on some of the best food in L.A., at over 300 participating restaurants!

Participating restaurants are offering a special menu for lunch and/or dinner guaranteeing a 20% minimum value. For example Lunch is a 2+ course meal, and you will only have to spend $15, $20 or $25. Dinner is guarenteed to be a 3+ Course meal with prices ranging from $29, $39, $49 or $95+.

Prices and meal periods do vary by restaurant, so you should call first to see what exactly the restaurant is offering. These meals also exclude beverages, tax and gratuity.

To make the most out of your dineL.A. experience, we recommend that you make a reservation on our website or call the restaurant directly. Walk-ins are welcome, but with the popularity of the event advance reservations are strongly encouraged.

If you need a little help deciding where to grab a bite to eat, we can help! Below are our recommendations for dineL.A. 2018!

 

Cal Mare

This hot new restaurant is a fantastic addition to the usual dineL.A. line up. Cal Mare is Michael Mina's new Beverly Center restaurant. It is all about coastal Italian cuisine, and the dinner-only dineL.A. menu is fittingly full of fresh seafood, including California squid in spicy tomato broth, sea urchin with cauliflower and guanciale, and catch of the day with potatoes and botarga.

The best part though? It comes at a huge discount: $49 for a four-course meal! If you haven’t checked out Cal Mare yet, now is certainly the time to do it!

 

CUT by Wolfgang Puck

Now that we have recommended the hot new place to grab a bit, we want to recommend this classic restaurant!

The return of the Amex "exclusive series" unlocks discounted menus at some of L.A’s high-end restaurants, and Wolfgang Puck's Beverly Hills steakhouse, CUT, is one of them. At cut you can treat yourself to a $95 four-course menu that includes sautéed scallops with celery root and black truffle, little gem lettuce with persimmon and blue cheese, port-braised lamb with roasted vegetables, dry-aged New York steak, and chocolate cremeaux with passion fruit caramel.

This is one of the best high-end deals offered this year!

 

Fishing With Dynamite

 

For all of you seafood lovers out there, this is what you have been waiting for! Chef David LeFevre's $25 dineL.A. menu may be lunch-only, but it runs until 4:45 each night, giving you plenty of time to enjoy your three courses! The meal deal includes hamachi, rockfish and shrimp ceviche, a raw-bar platter, crab cake, grilled albacore, fish tacos, and Key lime parfait.
