| Wonho Frank Lee

DineLA is returning to the restaurant industry this summer, bringing in tourists and rustling up locals for special multi-course meals at restaurants across the city. The idea is to provide a way for everyone to get out and enjoy restaurants they may not otherwise frequent, or to bring down the cost of entry at some of the higher-end places in the city so that everyone can enjoy them.

Over the years the menus and participating eateries have grown exponentially, meaning this summer there are more fantastic deals than ever before. Whether that means a $40 steal at Downtown's Simbal, a $29 Koreatown party at Pot, or a choose-your-own adventure at the always busy MB Post in the South Bay, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
