DineLA Week is a tricky SOB.
You think you’re getting a deal.
You get excited, make several reservations to snooty places and then end up spending the same, if not more, money than if it was any other week.
In a word, you’re dumb.
I added it up, in some cases (such as with Il Covo) you get about $10 off. You’re basically getting a free dessert. Which I do appreciate, not trying to sound like a cheapskate here.
However, if you’re broke ass is shelling out loot you don’t have for a $10 savings and then ends up ordering an extra drink, it doesn’t really make much sense, now does it?
All that being said, I LOVE Il Covo.
Super cute (romantic even), very friendly, great food. All the usual traits of a solid restaurant.
All THAT being said, DineLA has successfully raped my wallet and partially filled my belly. Welcome to the LA food scene.
