dineLA Restaurant Week will serve up some changes this summer

Special to the Los Angeles Times

The biannual dineLA Restaurant Week discount dining program is cooking up some tasty changes to attract summer vacationers.

Set for July 16-27, the new warm-weather dates highlight L.A.'s abundant sunshine, fresh produce and al fresco dining spots. Restaurants will set menus for the $25, $35 or $45 dinners and for $15, $20 or $25 two-course lunches.

For the first time, dineLA will be available Saturday and Sunday, allowing for long weekends of eating, drinking and sleeping.

Still hungry? Part 2 of the program returns in January. Stay tuned for more deals as the program’s sponsors finalize hotel packages that include dineLA restaurants and cool ways to eat like a local.
