This Year’s DineL.A. Let’s You Sample The Globe Without Leaving Your Living Room
Travel the globe, no passports needed! If you live or happen to be in the Los Angeles area, you can experience the global decadence of this year’s dineL.A. without leaving your house. From September 1 – 18, the biannual celebration of food is offering delivery and takeout service.
This year, 300 eateries from every corner of the city are representing numerous global cuisines that will offer set courses paired with family meal kits. This move will allow people at home to recreate the experience of dining together while much of Los Angeles county remains under strict social distancing orders.
“We have always sought to use the dineL.A. platform as a means to support the restaurant industry,” explains Stacey Sun, executive director for the event to Forbes. “We know that things are more difficult than ever and it is our goal that [we] can act as both an encouraging means to get out and enjoy food however you feel safest—on-site, delivery, takeout—as well as a way for us to unite in support of those most affected during this pandemic.”
Some of the restaurant highlights include SoCal favorites like KALI and Sky’s Gourmet Tacos, Harold & Belles, serving up New Orleans classics, and Mexico-City inspired Veranda. You can check out the full list of restaurants to see if your favorites are opting in for the food celebration.
With the restaurant industry taking a huge hit this year due to COVID-19, dineL.A. provides a way for patrons to support their favorite spots while also discovering some new gems.
“We understand that dining is likely radically changed for a long time and we’re utilizing the opportunity to think positively and proactively,” according to Sun. “We serve not only the diners but the chefs and restaurants as well.”
