Dine LA

Dine LA is the city’s most popular dining event taking place from January 19 – February 1, 2015. A huge number of LA restaurants are opening their doors to offer specially priced prix-fixe menus, with lunches starting at just $15 and dinner at $30. Make your reservations now, because they do fill up! It’s one of the most anticipated foodie things to do in LA.
