Do you live in SoCal? Even if you don’t but are willing to visit or perhaps are in the midst of working or playing in the lovely lower regions of this populous sunny state, then this July, we have an event for you, especially if you have an appreciation of divine cuisine. Our friends at Modern Luxury’s Angeleno magazine are hosting its 12th annual LIVE & DINE L.A. in celebration of The Restaurant Issue. Both the publication (which is out now and found online) and the event honor the city’s most distinguished chefs and restaurateurs of 2014 who continue to shape and evolve L.A.’s culinary scene. Guests will be treated to signature bites and menu samplings prepared by the celebrated chefs, which will be paired with exclusive wines and artisanal cocktails. Ticket proceeds to benefit Share our Strength.
