  1. Thanks for posting this.

    It looks like they did away with the 85 dollar spots?

    1. Waiting for chrishei to do his cost-benefit analysis.

        In progress - should be done before end of the week. Will have a buy/hold/sell of my previous 30+ choices, and 18 new choices (3/price point).

          1. re: TheOffalo

            But they have AOC listed. Haven't multiple other posters here stated that there is little savings involved in their menu?

            1. re: TheOffalo

              This season's list is pretty hard to compile...

        1. Yippee!

          I would be interested to see which ones in the Santa Monica/Venice/Culver City areas you've short-listed, westsidegal. I'm feeling overwhelmed with choices (a good problem to have).

            my #1 pick is Catch.
            will go there as often as i can during restaurant week.

            1. re: westsidegal

              Not been to Catch b/f but made a reservation for next wk based on your rec. I'll report back when I've tried it....

              1. re: ilysla

                the last restaurant week their meal was so good i ended up going there three times for the same meal.

                hope it's as good this time!

                1. re: westsidegal

                  I hope so, too! The apps look particularly appealing....

            2. re: spoonlicker

              Spoon, Avoid 041 Bacaro which is first on the list and is in Culver City. I had an awful experience there. Unclean, terrible food and service. If anyone had a good experience, I would like to hear.

                Baron: thank you for preventing me from making that mistake!

                1. re: westsidegal

                  I think 041 rivals Polantino as the WORST restaurant in recent memory. Catch looks great. Will have to try.

                  1. re: Baron

                    i'll throw one in to avoid based on my absolutely horrid last restaurant week experience there:
                    AVOID BOA santa monica until another hound goes and confirms that it is acceptable this round.
                    good service, TERRIBLE food. (among the terribles)

                    1. re: westsidegal

                      Ooh, dish, sister. Let's hear some details.

                      I've carried what has felt like an unfair bias against that place since it opened, so I'm interested to hear if my silly prejudices have any basis in reality (or reality as you experienced it, at least).

                      1. re: spoonlicker

                        i wish i could.

                        let's see if this will work:

                        the only thing acceptable about the meal was the good work done by the server.

                        1. re: westsidegal

                          The brevity says it all. Oof, must've been BAD.

            3. I went online but I couldn't open any of the menus. Which ones look the most promising?

                1. re: westsidegal

                  Thanks, that's what I did but it wasn't coming up. I will try again.

                  1. re: paprkutr

                    @paprkutr -- a few restaurants don't post until the last minute like Lukshon, but the majority already have.

              2. I am very bummed that Fogo de Chao has dropped lunch and now will do only dinner for DineLA.
