It's that time of year again for Dine LA Restaurant Week this Sunday October 2nd thru Friday 7th and Sunday 9th thru Friday 14th. Enjoy 3 to 4-course meals at your favorite restaurant around $15 for lunch and $30 to $44 for dinner.
Here's a list of participating restaurants I've been to and reviewed in the past.
A.O.C. – it's an L.A. institution! I haven't had this newbie yet, but the Cornbread Stuffed Trout with Potato-Tomato Gratin and Aioli sounds to die for.
Capital Grille – a steak dinner steal! Get the Clam Chowder, Kona-Crusted Dry Aged Sirloin, and Flourless Chocolate Cake all for $34
Gordon Ramsey at the London West Hollywood Hotel – if you've ever watched an episode of Hell's Kitchen, you know you can't go wrong with the constantly perfected riSOTto. It's served with Chanterelle Mushroom, Sauteed Scallop & Quail Egg
Itacho – it's one of the first Dine LA restaurant's I ever tried, and it still remains one of the best sushi deals around: Sashimi, Chirashi, Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice – need I say more?
Susan Feniger's STREET – once my favorite restaurant in L.A. (until the menu kept changing) go for the Kaya Toast staple. It's a salty, sticky sweet food combo you've never tasted before.
Tavern – another one of Suzanne Goin's you-must-be-goin-to LA spot, order the Market Fish with Tomato Brown Butter Sauce for lunch and Snicker's Bar for dessert.
