“We are fortunate to live in Los Angeles where we have access to such a variety of dining options, from long‐standing institutions to new restaurants by nationally acclaimed chefs and restaurateurs,” says Mark Liberman, president and CEO of LA INC.
“dineLA Restaurant Week is a testament to our local talent and consistently offers an impressive list of participants.
