Enjoy Tastes of the LA during January’s Restaurant Week

One of Los Angeles residents’ favorite events, the dineLA Restaurant Weeks are incredibly popular with locals and visitors alike. A 12 day event of culinary specialities, during the dineLA Restaurant Week, venues across the city serve prix-fixe lunches and dinners that showcase their cuisine, have an ethnic food background or another unique style. An enormous range of restaurants take part in the event – in 2013, more than three hundred restaurants were participating venues – and as of December 19th a full listing of restaurants taking part in the next Restaurant Week will be available on the dineLA website. The next event is taking place between January 20th and 31st, 2014.

Visitors staying in North Hollywood are not required to purchase tickets or entry passes for the restaurants, they just need to make reservations at their chosen locations like they would for any other dinner evening. Walk-in bookings may be made on the night, but most restaurants anticipate becoming heavily populated and there will be no guarantee that walk in bookings can be accepted. Advance bookings are highly recommended.

DineLA Restaurant Week is an event organized by the Tourism and Convention Board of Los Angeles with support from American Express. Their aim is to show the community and the rest of the world that Los Angeles is a significant location on the food map, an important dining area and one which is full of variety and excellent quality cookery. Since it began in 2008, the event has more than doubled in size, from 140 restaurant partners in 2008 up to the numbers of venues available today. Restaurants are grouped according to three tiers – deluxe, premier, and fine dining establishments – and as part of the prix-fixe menu guests are offered an appetizer, entrée and dessert course.
