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!
