The LA Date Book. It’s Indispensable.

Where to eat, drink and play right now.

By The Editors

From the driving, to the parking, to the not knowing where to drive or park, dinner in L.A. is harder than it should be. That’s why we created Dinner Plan — your weekly three-step itinerary to a damn good evening.

And now we’ve collected those plans into this, our fifth Dinner Plan Guidebook.

Inside: plans for romancing your lady, day-tripping with your pals or running the ol’ couples date in every neighborhood from Hollywood to Santa Monica.

Want a day trip? Go paddleboarding in Ventura and dine on oysters at a pop-up.

Dinner and a movie? Hit Tarantino’s New Beverly and then an Indonesian feast.

Bar hopping? We know of a French spot and an art deco boîte.

Enjoy the guidebook, friends. We certainly enjoyed researching it.

Dine well,

Nota bene: More? You want more? Check out (and print) the first, second, third and fourth editions of the Dinner Plan Guidebook.
