Add Prix Fixe To Your Vocabulary: Restaurant Week Is Here!

Get your appetites ready – it's time for DineLA Restaurant Week! The sixth season runs Jan. 23-28 and Jan. 30-Feb. 4, with specially-priced three-course prix fixe lunches and dinners at restaurants throughout West Hollywood and Los Angeles County. This year more than 300 restaurants across the city have chosen to partake, which has landed this newest installment the distinction of being the largest restaurant week in the country, yowza!

Before we get to the good stuff, and as a reminder for most, here's how it all works:

Almost exactly as the last go-around, restaurants around town will offer special prix fixe lunch and dinner sets. Lunch menus are priced at $16, $22 or $28, while dinner costs $26, $34 or $44. Of course, the pricier the meal option, the more likely you’ll land some foie gras, shaved truffle or some other fancy-shmancy ingredient situation.

Exclusive Interview With GuitarTown Artist And Photographer Nic Adams

This summer The Sunset Strip partnered with Gibson Guitar to launch a public art exhibit celebrating the people and places that have shaped the boulevard. Southern California photographer Nic Adams was one of the artists selected to customize a 10-foot fiberglass art guitar as part of the “GuitarTown Sunset Strip” exhibit. We recently caught up with him to discuss his career photographing a who’s who of personalities and icons – from Pharcyde to Eddie Vedder to Dennis Hopper – his photography philosophy, and how it happened that he ended up creating a giant guitar celebrating the Prince of Darkness.

 

2011 Sunset Strip Music Festival Set For August 18-20!
