If you were wondering how good dineLA Restaurant Week was this winter for the local economy, the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau shared some numbers today.

  • 193,000 = how many diners participated
  • 295 = how many restaurants participated
  • $6.2 million = "boost to the local economy"
  • 72% = "increase in covers over the last Winter 2010 event"
  • 86% = particpating chefs and restaurants joining dineLA Restaurant Week this season who reported an increase in business
  • 90% = ("nearly") that many who felt they attracted a new demographic during Winter 2011 dineLA Restaurant Week.

Some numbers that might matter more to you, and your future dining calendar: dineLA Restaurant Week will return this fall with two more weeks of dining deals October 2-7 and October 9-14, 2011.
