Book the Sitter or a Family Table for dineLA Restaurant Week

by Jessica on January 25, 2011

dineLA Restaurant Week is on! Starting Monday of this week, a whole bunch of restaurants across the Los Angeles region offer specially priced prix fixe meals for two weeks (excluding weekends). And with every round of Restaurant Week, the number of participating businesses grows. The dineLA deal is a tiered system, with three dining categories of Deluxe ($16 lunch/$26 dinner), Premier ($22 lunch/$34 dinner), and Fine Dining ($28 lunch/$44 dinner) on January 23 through 28, and January 30 through February 4. Most restaurants offer three choices with each course (appetizer, main and dessert). And remember, it never hurts to do the math if just kinda seems like you’re getting a deal. The SALE! mentality can be tricky; recently I figured out that the full value of all three courses included in a dineLA meal came out to exactly the same as those dishes would cost on any regular night. Good thing my friends and I didn’t pick the place explicitly to take advantage of Restaurant Week.

Anyway, the list is worth perusing, and Restaurant Week can present a fantastic chance to eat somewhere you wouldn’t otherwise go. Like to for instance, say, a schmancy hotel restaurant. It’s especially a good excuse to splurge if you’re already paying a babysitter. But if romance doesn’t enter into the equation, I’ve bolded some excellent and/or fun restaurants on the full roster after the jump that I think could work for the whole brood. As a P.S., I should mention that restaurants still offer their regular a la carte menus, since the prix fixe meals are sometimes only worth ordering for kids with larger appetites.
