Been wanting to try a "new" place, on a budget? Dine LA Restaurant Week is coming up quick! January 27 - February 1 and February 3- February 8, (note it does not include Saturday night) you can try find 3 course prixe-fixe meals at restaurants all over! Lunch is $15-25 and dinner $22-34. Now granted there are some I wouldn't walk into for free, like Twin Palms, but there are some that I would love to try! There are several San Gabriel Valley choices.
Here is the list of participating places, by region. Many of them also have the menus that they will be serving on-line. I suggest making reservations now, (reservations available to the general public starting 1/16) However if you are an American Express Card member you can make reservations today!
Dine in LA week is supposed to the promote extraordinary diversity and culinary expertise found in Los Angeles, however it also promotes expanding your waist, and breaking that New Years resolutions to cut back.
