Spring DineLA is back! Reservations are now being accepted at hundreds of Los Angeles County eateries for Dine LA’s Spring Restaurant Week. The widely-popular, twice-yearly program is celebrating its 15th Anniversary year and runs April 28 through May 12.
The City of West Hollywood has a long list of participating restaurants that include Connie and Teds, B Side Pizza, La Boheme, Sur Restaurant, The Butcher’s Daughter, WeHo Bistro and so much more. There are currently 24 WeHo restaurants on the list.
This year’s event features an exciting lineup of new restaurants alongside classic favorites that have participated and served Angelenos and visitors over the last decade and a half.
We visited Per L’Ora in downtown for a preview of their DineLA menu, which features a three course dinner for $75. It includes a choice of avocado toast, focaccia with confit garlic, Green Goddess salad, beef tartare, and crabcake appetizer; spaghetti, sweet corn agnolotti, half spatchcock chicken, tagliatelle with lobster or veal Milanese choices for main courses and dessert options of an almond ginger cake, tirmi-choux chocolate bowl and Earl Grey panna cotta for dessert. The atmosphere was beautiful and the food delicious, with a special bonus of a secret vault bathroom downstairs.
“Since the inception of DineLA 15 years ago, it has been remarkable to witness the culinary scene evolve in Los Angeles, recently hallmarked by the latest Michelin and Bib Gourmand starred and recommended restaurant nominations, 26 of which are participating in DineLA this year.” said Stacey Sun, Executive Director of DineLA. “We launched this program to support Los Angeles’ diverse and multicultural culinary landscape, and it continues to make a positive economic impact for the local restaurant industry and city at large.”
Produced by Los Angeles Tourism, DineLA offers a unique way for Angelenos and visitors to experience the best of the city’s dining at flexible price points ranging from $15- $65+ for lunch or dinner. Los Angeles is currently home to over 200 MICHELIN Guide recognized eateries, underscoring the city’s status as one of the world’s leading dining capitals and elevating LA neighborhoods like the Arts District, Culver City and Little Tokyo. To date, Spring DineLA participants canvas 55 neighborhoods, 34 global cuisines and 33 MICHELIN recognized restaurants. The 15th anniversary year will also include a second 15-day event, taking place in Fall 2023.
