DineLA's Restaurant Week Gets Into the Food Truck Craze
The first-ever fall edition of DineLA's popular Restaurant Week takes place Oct. 4-9 and 11-16, once again offering prix fixe menus at popular eateries all over town. Over 260 restaurants are participating.
To spread the word, DineLA has taken to the current food truck trend, sending top chefs out to hand out free food all over Los Angeles this week. Yesterday, The Foundry on Melrose's chef/owner Eric Greenspan and sous chef Nick Russo were outside the Variety Building, and we were there to sample a few free goodies:
Carmelized scallops (with spinach, almonds and curry)
Tuna tartare (with bok choy, orange and soy)
Both items will be featured on the Foundry's Dine LA menu ($44 for an appetizer, mid-course, entree and dessert).
Here's the rest of the week's DineLA food truck stops:
Sept. 30, Santa Monica: Anisette Brasserie Executive Chef, Alain Giraud
Oct. 1, Beverly Hills: Lawry's, The Prime Rib Executive Chef, Walter Eckstein
Oct. 2, Downtown: Rosa Mexicano, Executive Chef John England
