Go Go’ers, this is the week to say your prayers, work your rosary, and make novenas because there is all kinds of temptatious-ness in this big ‘ole city right now.
dineL.A. Restaurant Week(s)
Damn the diet and full feed ahead with many days (and nights!) of deals on nibbles!
This week and next, almost 300 restaurants will be offering three-course prix fixe menus — some for lunch, some for dinner, some for both — so you can
gorge gourmet-it around the clock.
Plunk down $16, $22, or $28 for lunch and $26, $34, or $44 for dinner (not including tipples, tax and tip) and get your choice of appetizer, entree and dessert from the New Year’s-resolution-wrecking menus.
JK, there are spa cuisine-worthy offerings for the spartan…and the iron-willed.
(Through Friday, January 28th; January 30th through February 4th; http://discoverlosangeles.com/restaurantweekv2/index.jsp)
