Dining Deals around Los Angeles

Several restaurants have launched promotions recently in which their food or drinks are available at lower prices than their standard offerings.

I covered the White Plate dinners at Wilshire restaurant last week, in which an entree and beverage are only $15, but there are other great options to look for.

BLD restaurant, on Beverly Blvd, has a Plat du Jour every weeknight for $15 as part of their "Recovery Relief":
Monday: BBQ Smoked Beef Brisket
Tuesday: Country Fried Chicken
Wednesday: Smoked Chicken Ravioli
Thursday: Tweet-a-Dish
Friday: Beer Battered Fish Tacos

Last week Bastide launched a cocktail hour from 5-7 pm on Monday evenings only. Your choice of a soju martini, one of three wines by the glass or a rotating cocktail of the week plus the opportunity to munch on three of Chef Joseph Mahon's hors d'oeuvres such as yellowtail tartare, rillettes and summer corn soup can be yours for $15.

It appears that $15 is the magical price point right now for dining deals.

I would be remiss not to include the continuing Bar Food menu at Drago Centro, where a mini margherita or sausage pizza is only $4, kobe beef slides are only $7, and several beers and specialty cocktails are only $5. This menu is available whenever Drago Centro is open, not just for certain hours or days of the week, making this an affordable option to consider when in downtown LA.
