To get everyone in the mood for the upcoming dineLA Restaurant Week, dozens of Los Angeles' most celebrated chefs gathered at the Hollywood Roosevelt Tuesday night for a night of food, drink, and revelry.

Presiding over the event, which featured innovative signature cocktails from the Roosevelt's Library Bar's mixologist, Matt Biancaniello, and catering by the hotel's Dakota Chop House and 25 Degrees, was dineLA's Carrie Kommers, and special guests Councilman Tom LaBonge and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Among the attendees who graced the red carpet were chefs who were either or both listed on dineLA's recently unveiled Chef Family Tree and whose restaurants are participating in dineLA's first 2010 event, taking place January 24-29 and January 31-February 5.

With chefs as the new rock stars, this party was a local food-enthusiast's paradise, second only perhaps to the 234 restaurants from which to choose for dineLA meals in a couple of weeks.
