Top chefs across L.A. this month are going overboard with avocado dishes and we couldn’t be happier about it. Gather a girlfriend and starting checking off our hitlist of best avocado eats to try as part of DineLA’s partnership with the California Avocado Association (can we join this association?).

This summer’s Restaurant Week is July 18th – July 31 this year and these five local mainstays will be serving up culinary creations worthy of their “avocado ambassador” titles. We’re talking avocado ice cream, avocado cocktails, and avocado push-up pops. Dozens of other top restaurants across the city will be offering exclusive prix fixe lunch and dinner menus as part of the special week, offering Angelenos the chance to sample the best of LA’s food scene (and an excuse to break away from our usual restaurant rotation).

Read on for our personal picks from those glorious avocado themed menus and where you can find them… and us.
