Coming Soon: Dine Out LA

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


Who knew that going out to eat in some of our city's top restaurants could not only ease your hunger, but help fight hunger nationwide? The Dine Out program returns to Los Angeles with its 4th annual Dine Out LA days, coming soon to a fine eating establishment near you. This phenomenal program gives you the opportunity to enjoy a $20 lunch or a $35 dinner prix fixe menu meal, with the benefits going towards the charitable Share Our Strength anti-hunger program. OpenTable is also stepping in to participate, as they are listing their member restaurants and are a tool for making the reservations that are highly recommended for this popular event. Dine Out LA takes place Monday through Friday for two weeks next month (15th-19th and 22nd-29th) and some establishments may not be offering both lunch and dinner deals, so we urge you to check into the individual restaurant of your choice. LAist hopes we can get out and eating for both the extremely good cause of fighting hunger, and for our own "cause" of expanding our dining horizons. Check after the jump for a complete list of participating restaurants.
