More than 300 Los Angeles–area restaurants will be offering special menus for lunch and dinner when dineLA celebrates its 10th anniversary from July 13-27, showcasing one of the most diverse selections yet.
Lunches of a minimum of two courses range from $15 to $25 and dinners with at least three courses go from $29 to $95 for the exclusive series, which features specials from participating eateries including Maude, Providence, Spago, the Royce and Mélisse, among others. Reservations are strongly recommended.
“During dineLA, I like to give guests an opportunity to taste a little bit of everything that we serve here at Nick & Stef’s,” chef Megan Logan tells L.A. Weekly.
“I like to feature a mix of signature items, like our oak and mesquite grilled petite filet and JBS mashed potatoes, alongside a few seasonal items, like the panna cotta with stone fruit — perfect for a warm evening here in downtown Los Angeles. Our sides are served family-style, so dineLA is the perfect time to order a few different selections.”
