From Jan 27 - Feb 1
and
Feb 3 - Feb 8

This dining event seems so ametuer compared to SF's lauded event.

Anyhow, looking through this list I only see about 7 actual decent choices

All' Angelo (Italian)
Neomeze (Italian)
Red seven (Wolfgang Puck Pan-asian)
Beacon (Pan-Asian)
Patina (American-Modern)
Grace (American-modern with french influences)
Violet (American-modern, mid-priced) This place already has 25$ dinner Sundays!!
Il moro (Bolognese)

Optional
Table 8 (American Modern, Comfort food, bar menu)
Ocean Ave Seafood (standard Seafood) [Water grill, providence, catch, il grano, hungry cat would have been nice too]
3 on fourth (World Cuisine....I hear the food is average for the price)

I can understand places like Chinois on main, but J restaurant and Lounge? Are you kidding me? SF has some bad restaurants too, but this list makes LA look like crap. No wonder people think food in LA stinks. Why don't our good restaurants participate? Don;t places like the Foundry, Ortolan, Opus, Celadon, Bashan, Canele, Blue Velvet want some more publicity. They could all use it, and all of them are at least decent. This list is a very poor representation of LA.
