It's the most wonderful time of the year...again! Christmas has come again, bringing new deals to the LA dining scene. DineLA is one of the best times to check off all those new restos on your wishlist, allowing you to sample the menus of the city's best spots for a fraction of the price. This year, it seems like every important restaurant is participating, with both lunch and dinner specials running from January 18th-30th. Check out some of our favorite deals below, and don't forget to start booking now!
2. Connie & Ted's: Last year, we thoroughly enjoyed our DineLA meal at Connie & Ted's, and this year, they're back with a $25 lunch deal that won't disappoint. For that, you get a 3 course meal with choice of appetizer (like oysters or a chowder sampler), entree (we'd like that batter dipped cod sandwich, please and thank you), and even dessert!
3. Birch: This new hotspot in Hollywood is doing a 3-course dinner for $39, just like many of the other DineLA participants. But they've sweetened the deal by throwing in a choice of a house signature cocktail or glass of wine. Also, one of the appetizers is a chicken liver foie gras mousse. Yuuumm.
4. Scratch Bar & Kitchen: Never to be outdone on the tasting menu front, the new Scratch Bar & Kitchen by Chef Philip Frankland Lee in Encino is offering a 7 course tasting menu for only $39. Though the portions will most likely be small, the flavors are always big.
5. Barcito: This downtown neighborhood gem is offering two appetizers, an entree, and a dessert for only $29! With Argentine-inspired flavors and ridiculously delicious churros, this may be the deal to beat.
