Through July 28, Angelenos can scour LA in search of some pretty bitchen lunches and dinners through dineLA. Billed as Summer Road Trip, the twice-yearly event features top restos all over town. Check out some of these dishes exclusive to dineLA.
The foodie must in the Four Seasons is named for a smoky vault where ancient Romans prepared their food. Exec Chef Mirko Paderno’s menu features contemporary twists on Italian classics and the wine list is superb. For dineLA, the prix-fixe menu includes Conghigue al Nero — black ink fresh pasta with calamari and langoustine broth. Gnocchetti de Patate features classic potato gnocchi with pesto, almond, and Parmigiano.
