dineL.A. Restaurant Week returns for its summer edition from July 12-26. The two-week promotion features special prix-fixe menus from over 400 restaurants across Los Angeles.
Here’s how it works: participating restaurants offer tasting menus from $15 to $35 during lunch and $29 to $99+ during dinner. Usually we dig through all the menus to find the ones we think are the most worthy to visit. This time we are zeroing in on the best $15 deals during dineL.A., leaving you satisfied in the stomach and wallet.
Here’s a quick rundown of $15 lunch menus that should be on your checklist as you eat your way through the city the next two weeks.
