20 Awesome Meals and Deals to Hit During dineLA Restaurant Week
When it comes to a delicious and filling steak dinner, it doesn’t get more classic than Dear John’s, which once served as a popular hangout for the Rat Pack and other Hollywood elite and was reopened in 2019 by local chefs Hans Röckenwagner and Josiah Citrin, who maintained the steakhouse’s retro roots with brick interiors, plush leather booths, and red tablecloths. The restaurant was closed to in-person dining for most of this year and last, and their Restaurant Week menu offers an opportunity to try their Sinatra-approved dinners at a lower price point, including famous entrees like their prime sirloin and chicken parmesan.
The deal: $65 for a three-course dinner.
What to order: Traditional Caesar salad, prime sirloin “Steak Diane” with a side of mashed potatoes, and mascarpone cheesecake for dessert.
