During dineL.A. Restaurant Week, West Hollywood is the Place to Be
Twice a year, local restaurants offer amazing prix fixe deals
dineL.A. Restaurant Week (July 12-26, 2019) is a celebration of drinking and dining around the city of Los Angeles, and it keeps getting bigger and better. Each Restaurant Week lasts about two weeks, and they happen twice a year—in mid-January and mid-July. And it only keeps getting better. The Los Angeles version is now the largest restaurant week in the entire nation, and West Hollywood is at the center of the action.
During dineL.A., restaurants offer prix fixe meals at special prices, far below what they’d typically cost. It’s a great opportunity to visit fine dining restaurants and try different kinds of cuisine.
Hundreds of standout restaurants around the city will participate in the dineL.A. showcase on July 12-26, including 22 of West Hollywood’s most acclaimed restaurants.
Want a taste of what to expect? Here are a few of the delectable dishes that were available in West Hollywood during dineL.A. in January 2019.
Croft Alley at The Standard
Kurobuta Pork Chop
Croft Alley at The Standard is known for dishes that highlight fresh flavors and local ingredients. Back in January, they offered a Kurobuta Pork Chop served with long-braised cabbage and bacon jam. This time around, we’re looking forward to their Chicken Schnitzel.
Connie & Ted’s
The Lobster Roll at Connie and Ted’s is an L.A. institution and is always available your way. The first option is to have it hot, with warmed, drawn butter. The second is a cold preparation, with the meat tossed in a creamy, chilled mayo. Both preparations are served on a buttery, soft, brioche roll made in-house daily.
Dungeness Crab Ravioli
Cecconi’s is a modern-day Italian spot that plays homage to classic dishes while adding their own fresh spin to them. This perfect plate of pasta combined fresh ravioli stuffed with Dungeness crab. Their summer menu will include gnocchi and linguine dishes.
E.P. & L.P.
Sticky Spare Ribs
For dineL.A., Chef Louis plated fun twists on American classics, using the flavors of the Far East. A dish that’s always on our radar is the Sticky Spare Ribs with 5 spice caramel, pickled serrano chili, and roasted rice. Plus, you can’t beat the skyline views from the roof.
Petrossian West Hollywood
Petrossian becomes wonderfully affordable during dineL.A. The star at this French restaurant is caviar and during winter dineL.A., they offered creamy Caviar Risotto.
Taste on Melrose
Waffle and Oreo Panna Cotta Sandwich
All your childhood favorites, together in one dessert. This past winter, Taste on Melrose combined Oreo cookies, waffle cookies and peanut butter for the ultimate dessert sandwich. Taste knows how to take American comfort food to the next level. We hear a s’mores dessert might be available this time around.
White Truffle Linguini
Tesse put together a special white truffle tasting menu for the dineL.A. Exclusive Series. Guests feasted on four courses plus dessert that highlighted this decadent ingredient. Our taste buds are dancing just thinking about the Cacio e Pepe dish topped with white truffles. Their current menu highlights caviar and truffles.
Apple Cheesecake Chimichangas
Come for the jalapeño margaritas but stay for the dessert. The flavor combinations at Tortilla Republic never disappoint and this dessert made with gala apples, mascarpone cream, cinnamon, and caramel was another successful creation. For their summer menu, you can try fresas con crema or churros with caramel sauce.
Margarita lovers, this one’s for you. Gracias Madre prepares them in the purest of forms—tequila reposado, agave, lime, orange bitters, sweet citrus salt rim—without sacrificing flavor. You can order yours spicy or made with mezcal if you’re feeling adventurous.
