Tuesday night was the kick off party for this Fall's Dine LA Restaurant Week. Starting this Sunday, January 23rd, participating restaurants will be offering three-course lunches and dinners at bargain prices. Lunches are available for $16, $22, and $28, and dinners for $26, $34, and $44.
This is a chance to fall in love again with that restaurant you haven't been to in years, try a place that's been lingering on your list of places to go for some time, or to take the plunge into the latest hotspots.
