We always love when Restaurant Week comes to New York so we thought we'd round-up some of our fave hotel restaurants for Los Angeles' own restaurant week, dineLA which kicks off today and lasts through July 27. Yes, that includes the weekend of July 21-22 as well. Best of all, you don't need to book a room to enjoy these dishes!

1. Culina at Four Seasons Los Angeles: The modern Italian restaurant is the new heartbeat of this legendary hotel on Doheny, serving up Italian crudo, wholesome pizzas and freshly made pasta thanks to their $20,000 pasta machine. During dineLA lunch is on offer for $25 per person while dinner is $45 and that includes a sample of the house-made gelato.

2. Scarpetta at Montage Beverly Hills: Chef Scott Conant's earthy Italian cuisine pairs starter choices such as halibut crudo, creamy polenta and a local market salad with heartier entree selections like branzino and a short rib agnolotti. Top it off with a chocolate cake served with burnt orange-caramel gelato and espresso sauce. Dinner is $45 a person.

3. Tres by José Andrés at SLS at Beverly Hills: Tres is the all-day dining restaurant inside the SLS that previously used to be open just to hotel guests. But now anyone can sample the creations from super star chef José Andrés like the SLS sliders and the rotisserie jidoori chicken. Lunches start at $25 while dinner is $45.

4. Cleo at The Redbury: Head to Hollywood and Vine and go inside the festive Redbury Hotel to hit up the Mediterranean cuisine of Cleo. Dinner is just $35 during dineLA and includes a mezze starter with your two choices of sides like hummus, babaganoush and cucumber and yogurt along with entree options such as kebabs and chicken tagine. Dessert is included too and we're already dreaming about the apple streusel with spiked vanilla ice cream.

5. Rooftop Biergarten at The Standard Downtown: If you're looking for a downtown detour without a lot of fuss, then kick it on the rooftop at the Standard Downtown. Lunch is a very reasonable $15 and includes a starter (mostly cabbage salads) an entree (mostly sausages) and either a small Bavarian pretzel or an apple strudel. The best part? A 6oz beer sampler is included!

If you participate in dineLA don't forget to enter their Facebook sweepstakes which will give one winner an overnight stay at the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes on July 21, dinner for two at mar'sel, lunch for two at bashi, and a Buick Regal GS for the weekend.
