Weekend Review: DineLA

Burrata & Beet Salad at Joe's

We're in the middle of some of my favorite weeks of the year - DineLA restaurant week . For those of you who aren't familiar with DineLA, it's a promotional deal where some of the city's best restaurants put together a three-course meal at a special rate for two weeks only. It's a great opportunity to try a new place, but I can't help re-visiting some old favorites as well. On Thursday night, my boyfriend and I went on a double date at AOC. It had been on my list of places to try for almost a year, and it definitely lived up to the hype. We ended up ordering off the regular menu so we could share as many different plates as possible. On Friday we went to one of our favorite local restaurants, Joe's. Joe himself was working the room and making sure we enjoyed our dishes. As usual, his food looked and tasted great.
