Dine L.A. Returns to Manhattan BeachOct 09, 2023 08:30PM ● By Jeanne Fratello
Donuts from The Strand House are part of the special Dine L.A. menu. (Passion fruit mojito and pina colada donuts!)
Dine L.A. Restaurant Week - actually, two weeks - is back for the 15th year, featuring special prix fixe menus at eight Manhattan Beach restaurants from now until October 20.
Dine L.A. takes place twice a year and showcases Los Angeles as a premier dining destination while highlighting the diversity of culinary experiences L.A. has to offer.
Think of it as an easy way to try new and/or featured dishes at some of your favorite restaurants - bundled up in a special price.
There are no special passes or tickets required. Each restaurant will have its menu available (along with the regular menu) during the specified times of the week. It is best to call ahead and/or make reservations if necessary. Keep in mind that prices listed do not include tax, tips, and/or beverages.
