ABC7 On Your Side: Restaurant deals
Sunday, June 15, 2008
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Times are tough, but we all need to eat -- Now, some of L.A.'s hottest restaurants are serving up deals designed to save you money and boost business on what are traditionally slow nights.
Live jazz is just one reason to stop by "Citizen Smith" in Hollywood. Every Monday night, diners can feast for 50 percent off. The deal applies to food only. But if you come back on Tuesdays, you can enjoy any bottle of wine -- also half off.
It's a sexy, club-like scene. Hundreds of candles cast shadows inside. And outside, there's a moonlit patio. Specialties of the house include jalapeno macaroni and cheese, and their flatiron steak.
Citizen Smith is on Cahuenga in Hollywood.
In West Hollywood, drop by Dolce on Melrose any Monday night. Indulge in any of their food, also for half off.
Dolce is known for its hip Italian vibe. Flames light up the bar and a live DJ keeps the music pumping.
It's a younger crowd, but one that's looking for a great deal.
Ketchup pours on the specials Sunday nights. The trendy West Hollywood restaurant offers its half-off food deal on Sunday nights.
"Fifty percent off every Sunday and it includes all food -- not drinks -- but the drinks are pretty cheap as well, so it's a great time," said Ketchup Manager Alexis Castaneda.
It's comfort food, with a side view of the Sunset Strip.
"This view, the food, great atmosphere in here, it's a really good time," said Castaneda. "It's like your traditional diner, but upscale with a good twist, it's very nice."
