Some of the restaurants listed include: Fuego at The Maya; Michael’s Santa Monica; Drago Centro; Rosa Mexicano; Spago Beverly Hills; The Bazaar; Cache; Campanile; Susan Feniger’s STREET and more (for complete list see below).

"It’s an exciting time for Fuego and the dineLA foodies to partake in the flavors, passion, and talents of what is known as dineLA Restaurant Week,  LA-style," comments Executive Chef Jesse Perez of Fuego at The Maya.  "I believe Fuego brings its own distinct flair to the culinary landscape of Los Angeles. I hope to introduce diners to a variety of flavors, spices, and ingredients that they may have never tried before. To complement that, Fuego at The Maya offers a beautiful resort experience and setting unlike anywhere else, providing a culinary destination and escape from the city."

Michael McCarty, executive chef and owner of Michael’s,  remarks, "I’ve always thought that LA is the great American melting pot in action, and 30 years after I first opened Michael’s in Santa Monica we’re still going strong with a menu that features the finest of fresh, seasonal, locally grown ingredients, simply and expertly cooked in ways that highlight their natural quality. We love to throw a great party with great food and great drink for our guests every day and every night, and we’re still as proud as ever to be part of the local dining scene.  dineLA Restaurant Week promotes the best in Los Angeles dining, and I’m delighted to join my fellow LA restaurateurs and chefs in helping celebrate what I believe is the best dining city in the nation."

Presented by LA INC. The Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau in partnership with American Express, dineLA Restaurant Week presents the diverse and extraordinary talent that exists in Los Angeles.  From local neighborhood family-owned eateries to upscale celebrity chef restaurants, dineLA Restaurant Week unites cafes, restaurants and bistros from all corners of the county.
