dineLA Winter Restaurant Week returns this coming January for a full fourteen day run with over 300 participants around Los Angeles. Over the years, the event has made strides in making it better for diners to enjoy the event, with two full weekends included plus Instagram contests. In addition, they'll be coordinating unique dishes only available at each particular restaurant, which means you'll be eating less Scottish salmon and roasted jidori chicken and more in the way of compelling bites.
While lunch time remains a relative bargain, with prices at $15, $20, and $25 dollars, dinner prices increase slightly to $30, $40, and $50. That means that with tax and tip, and before beverages, the most expensive class of restaurants can top $65 per person. That could mean a swanky meal at Bouchon or Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills, or it could mean mini-tasting menu at Lucques or Faith & Flower. Some bargain dinner spots clocking in at the $30 range include Alimento, Cleo, SunCafe, or Tres inside the SLS.
