Dine L.A. Week, October 10 through October 15
It 's the second installment of Dine L.A. week, a semi-annual summit promoted by Discover Los Angeles for which hundreds of local restaurants seek to bring in customers, new and old alike, with tempting prix fixe menus for lunch and/or dinner. Last week, we stopped in at Lucques for an aperitif before hopping over to LEADAPRON; beware, diners, Lucques's prix fixe is only available for lunch, but Mr. Chow has a very yummy spread for supper.
The Duchess wants to take advantage of the wallet-friendly menus and pay a visit to Waterloo & City before Dine L.A. week expires. The Washington Boulevard gastropub is just about the only hip new resto within striking distance of the Duchess, and it's garnering very good reviews.
