Where To Eat, Summer dineL.A. 2017

With more than 300 restaurants are participating, here's who makes our short list

Residents of Los Angeles, it's the most wonderful time of the year. All the restaurants you've been meaning to try are offering special savings and events for Summer dineL.A. from July 14 to 28, with more than 300 restaurants rolling out a plethora of lunch and dinner menus at special price points. To help you sift through all the options, here are our top five picks for surviving two epic weeks of dining.

① Gracias Madre

Offering specials at both lunch and dinner, Gracias Madre is the ideal choice for vegetarians. Feast on grilled street corn or barbecue jackfruit tacos with cashew crema, pickled cabbage and crispy onions. Bonus: A margarita is included in the price to help you stay hydrated.

② ink.

Top Chef alum Michael Voltaggio's Beverly Grove restaurant is one of the swankier establishments participating in the event's Exclusive Series of dining options—offering special menus limited to dineL.A.—with a four-course caviar tasting at $95 a person.

③ Lucques

Any self-proclaimed foodie should already be familiar with this spot and the chef behind it, Suzanne Goin. Lucques has been around for nearly two decades, and Goin has taken home multiple James Beard Awards throughout her career, including the Who's Who of Food & Beverage in America this year.

Hanjip Korean BBQ

A common complaint with Korean barbecue is that it gets expensive quickly—and easily. To which we have one thing to say about Hanjip's deal: all-you-can-eat lunch and dinner. You're welcome.

⑤ Rossoblu

This buzzed-about newcomer from chef Steve Samson features dishes from the region of Emilia-Romagna. There are tons of options to choose from, so this is the perfect spot for even the pickiest of eaters.
