DineLA Starts Today, Bringing Cheap Eats (And Discounted Rides) To The Masses
DineLA's bi-annual restaurant week kicks off today, opening up the doors to dining experiences which you might have thought were too steep for your starving artist's budget. These city-wide discounted deals highlight the diversity of culinary experiences the city has to offer at an affordable price. And plenty of awesome restaurants are involved.
Restaurant week is actually nearly two weeks (12 days really), that starts today and runs through January 31, excluding weekends. Participating establishments range from the old faithfuls like Bouchon Bistro and Drago Centro to the newbies participators like Wolfgang Puck's Spago, Josiah Citrin's Melisse, and Cliff's Edge in Silver Lake. Susan Feniger's revamped Mud Hen Tavern is also participating.
Of course, all that dining means many might be indulging in a glass of wine or two, so dineLA has partnered with Uber to offer $50 credits to first time riders. (You can get the discount code here.)
You can check out the list of participating restaurants and what they have on their special restaurant week menus on their site.
