Spring 2022 Dine LA Restaurant Week returns starting on Friday, April 1. The 15-day event supports 200 local restaurateurs and chefs who will be offering specially priced menus available for lunch and dinner for $15 to $65+. 

Newcomers this year include Downtown Los Angeles hotspot Yangban SocietyFanny’s at the Academy of Motion Pictures Museum, and LOAM at The Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.  

ShoresLAX, will be participating in Dine LA Restaurant Week for the first time with a $45 pre-fixed three-course meal that includes fig crostini with burrata, micro arugula, and  olive oil to start. Then comes a choice of a West Coast chopped salad with black kale, smoked bacon, shaved brussels sprouts, Manchego cheese, almonds, crispy shallots and citrus basil vinaigrette or short rib with butternut squash and farro risotto. The vegetarian option is mushroom gnocchi with three types of mushrooms, edamame, asparagus and pecorino.

Chefs Raphael Lunetta and Emillio Cuyuch’s “Taste of Lunetta” Dine LA menu this year is inspired by longtime guest favorites like herbed-roasted Alaskan halibut, wood-grilled lamb loin with Provencal ratatouille or spring pea risotto for dinner, and their signature crispy chopped salad, wood-grilled spiced mahi mahi and bone-in filet for lunch. Starters for lunch include heirloom tomato soup and three grilled cheese gourmet sandwiches, and the dinner starters include an amuse of mushroom cappuccino, heirloom baby beet salad, Hugo’s duck confit and pepper-crusted ahi tuna. Desserts for dinner include the  sticky toffee pudding.

Chef Lunetta has been participating in Dine LA since its first year in 2008, and to note the occasion, all Dine LA guests will be given a card for a free sticky pudding on their next visit as a thank you for coming in. Lunch is $35 per person and dinner is $65 per person.
