wondering if Mozza's arancini will be served at Gold Standard event? Guess I'll find out afterall...Thanks to bargain-hunting pal Esther, found out that Goldstar is selling discounted tickets to Jonathan Gold's "Gold Standard" tasting event. Instead of the original $60 + ticket fees, it's now $42.50 ($36 + $7.50) service charge. If you've been on the fence on whether to go because of the price, hopefully the ~ $20 off will push you over. It certainly did for me! Already got my ticket and hope to see you there.
Another deal that came my way is Restaurant.com, where you can get "gift certificates" (more like good coupons) for fraction on the dollar, is selling $25 gift certs this week for only $2 instead of the usual $10. As always, check the fine print but that's a $23 savings so a nice deal for a place that you already go to. Use code "Dine" when checking out (the code lasts till 2/28 - though the gift certs lasts quite a while after ordering, again, check the fine print)
P.S. one more bargain to add - for those who don't mind being Opening Week guinea pigs, West Hollywood's Cecconi's (which took over the old Morton's space) is offering half-off food from now till Feb. 27. Mostly Italian fare with a little modern Californian touches (the tuna/salmon tartare, local beets salad) but could be promising. Thanks to FauxLAHipster for heads up.
