I arrived in Los Angeles just in time for dineL.A. Restaurant Week, which took place January 19 to Februray 1. During this time, diners had the opportunity to enjoy a selection of specially priced prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus at some of L.A.’s best restaurants. I was lucky enough to enjoy four incredible dineL.A. experiences with new friends at Lukshon in Culver City, Blue Plate Taco in Santa Monica, Cafe Gratitude in Venice and Fig & Olive on Melrose Place - yup, there is actually such a place -  in West Hollywood.
