Tickets start at $115 and can be purchased by calling 1-877-26-Taste or visiting the website. [EaterWire]

SANTA MONICA—Piero Selvaggio's flagship restaurant, Valentino, is getting in on the recession special action and will now be offering a nightly three-course dinner for $49 and a $35 prix fixe at the Vin Bar. For now, the offer is good throughout the month of March. [Zagat]

TV LAND— Oh lordy. Sandra Lee gets another show: "Sandra's Money Saving Meals will premiere on May 10 at 12 p.m. The show will focus on Lee's 'triple A factor' of accessible, aspirational, and affordable food." [YumSugar via ENY]

FAIRFAX—Several tipsters have noted that the Eat-a-Pita location at the 400 N block of Fairfax (on the corner Rosewood) has been completely leveled, leaving "nothing but dirt" on the lot. Anyone know if something is in the works to replace it? [EaterWire]
