There are two things in my life that I have always been passionate about: Food and Saving Money. Welcome to the marriage of the two!

I adore food in just about all shapes and forms. I love the ritual of going out to a fabulous meal, reveling in the thoughtful surprise of an amuse bouche, savoring the marriage of unusual textures and tastes in the appetizer, letting the meal truly blossom into the entree, and then discovering that, yes, of course I have room for dessert! There are precious few things in this world that make me as happy as a truly delicious meal, and I would rather spend my money on food then anything else.

That being said, I have always been thrifty and damn proud of it! I am the girl who will happily tell you that my sweet little sundress was purchased at Target and my trendy sneakers are from Payless. I clip coupons and seek out sales. In these economic times, there is no shame in holding out for the best deal and then sharing it with the world.

And so Los Angeles, I am on a mission. I need to find the best food at the best price and start dining on those deals! I'm looking for Happy Hour Steals, Prix Fixe Deals, and Everyday Value Meals. So many good restaurants are struggling to bring in customers that they are offering some amazing food at totally managable prices. I intend to seek them out and let you know which ones are worth your time!

Don't worry, I won't be reviewing any McDonald's $1.00 menus on here. (Is it McDonalds that has that? I dunno, I really don't do fast food except for the occasional In and Out. Mmmmm, fries well done) This is a blog for quality restaurants, gastropubs, and lounges that offer delicious food at delicious prices.

Let the Dining on Deals begin!
