Every foodie’s favorite culinary celebration dineLA is back with great deals at some of the region’s best restaurants. The goal is to encourage people to savor those flavors that they may otherwise not try because of the cost. Pre-fix menus are created and offered at discount prices to encourage exploration.


Lunches range from $15 to $20 while dinners range from $29 to $95-plus.

Presented by the Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board, dineLA is a 15-day dining event that takes place twice a year and showcases Los Angeles as a premier dining destination while highlighting diversity of culinary experiences the SoCal region has to offer.


Over 300 restaurants are participating so no matter what kind of cuisine you like best, you’re sure to find something to tantalize those taste buds.


There’s a social media component, naturally. Snap a pic of some delicious dishes and you could win 100,000 American Airlines AAdvantage Miles.
