Ain’t no dinner party like a Questlove dinner party

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 three-step itinerary to a damn good time. Here’s your plan.

The L.A. Food and Wine Festival kicks off this weekend.

Expect four days of belly-busting gluttony, music by the Roots and more wine than you can shake a grapevine at.

There will be presentations by big-name chefs (Tyler Florence; Thomas Keller; basically every name in LA’s high-end skillet-shaking game). There will be booths upon booths plating small bites of gourmet grub. And there will be at least one “Definitive Boozy Brunch” hosted by James Beard winner Michelle Bernstein.

And it’s gonna be massive: they’re expecting more than 20,000 attendees. So it helps to have a plan. This is that plan.

It includes info on where to find California’s best restaurants, like Broken Spanish, Barrel & Ashes and Redbird — all newcomers at this year’s fest.

We’ll also spill the beans on the must-know transportation hack and give you a private cocktail den to venture to post-festival.

Polish your kicks and brush your mop.

It’s eating time.
