Best Week Ever 

Thursday, Sep 22 2011
I can't even begin to explain how awesome dineLA Restaurant Week is. When else can you get appetizer, entree and dessert at some of L.A.'s top restaurants at rock-bottom prices? Lunch for $22 at downtown's Water Grill: Are you kidding me? Lunch at Santa Monica's Border Grill for $16: Shut up! So what's on the menu? Three words: Blue Crab Hushpuppies (First & Hope, dinner $34). Or: Short Rib Agnolotti (Scarpetta, dinner $44). And even: Tres Tacos Chicos (Casa Vega, lunch $16). Hundreds of other restaurants are in on the deal, including Wolfgang Puck's 1980s stalwart Chinois on Main, David Myers' brasserie sensation Comme Ca and Susan Feniger's Street, whose dineLA entrees can all go vegan. Here's the one to blow your mind: West Hollywood's uber-expensive sushi bar Nobu serves up a three-course prix-fixe dinner for $44. Tofu toban-yaki, anyone? Various restaurants around L.A.; Oct. 2-7 & 9-14; lunch $16, $22 or $28; dinner $26, $34 or $44. Menus at dinela.com.
Sept. 2-Oct. 7; Oct. 9-14; Fri., Oct. 14, 2011
