We’ve had Newport Beach Restaurant Week and OC Restaurant Week, but now comes the biggest one of all: dineL.A.’s Restaurant Week, which runs through July 27.

Nearly 300 restaurants throughout L.A. County are participating with prix fixe lunch and dinner menus that range from $15 to $25 for lunch and $25 to $45 for dinner.

According to the dineL.A. website, Restaurant Week is presented by the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board in partnership with American Express, and is designed to stimulate business and introduce new customers to restaurants located in the many neighborhoods throughout L.A. County.

Among the restaurants are a handful that have OC counterparts, including Fig & Olive, Bluewater Grill, Red O, Patina, Morton’s, and more.

You can find a complete list of participating restaurants and their menus at
