Meetup with other single food and wine lovers (most in their 30's and 40's) at restaurants in all price ranges that are rated the "Best In LA." Your days of not having anyone to go with you to try famous restaurants, because you're a single foodie, will soon be over! {Applause!!!!}

We notice outstanding reviews on "best of" lists in LA Magazine, LA Weekly, LA Times, Eater, Chowhound, Bon Appetit, Zagat and Food & Wine, and make reservations at those restaurants exclusively. We also enjoy gourmet food trucks and new temples with tons of buzz that are swooned over in the food press and blogosphere. That's it!

We are the first Meetup group in LA to focus exclusively on restaurants that meet these parameters. That's been our sole focus since we started here in 2008.

Being able to join us for many fabulous meals is easy! There are just two steps but you must complete both to join the group:

1. Take a moment to answer our profile questions about a few foodie topics. If you're a fan of great food and restaurants you'll be able to do it in no time.

2. Make sure there's a recent photo of yourself on your profile. Your profile photo should be a clearly recognizable photo of you. No other people in the photo. No illustrations or huge sunglasses that obscure your face please. No stock photos of movie stars, animals or trees and flowers please. So that everyone is more comfortable we should be able to easily recognize you at the Meetup from your profile photo.

That's it!

Then, with the other members of this Meetup group you can explore places you "have been meaning to try" and enjoy fabulous meals and great conversation with fellow single and friendly foodies. We love to eat and socialize during fantastic meals at fabulous restaurants. Menu prices at our restaurants range from "dirt cheap" to "very expensive and worth every penny." It's always delicious either way!

This is a group of single food and wine fanatics. Most of our members are active, sophisticated, urban professionals in their 30's and 40's. If you're a picky eater, we're NOT for you. But, if you enjoy reading a menu and seeing some ingredients that you've never even heard of before, you'll fit right in! If you enjoy the lovely experience of a truly great restaurant, of expanding your palate, of having familiar favorites prepared by the top chefs in Los Angeles, you'll feel right at home with this Meetup.

Meetup charges me $180 per year to host our group on the site. There are also newspaper, magazine and other paid subscriptions used to research and plan the groups restaurant visits, as well as occasional restaurant reservation deposits to be made, and other associated costs. So, we have a membership fee of $6.00 per year to help keep the group active. Thank you!

If you've ever driven miles on a mission to eat something fabulous...ever vacationed for food... ever felt like you could pass out from happiness after a particularly amazing meal, you'll enjoy this Meetup. Please join us! 

Bon appetit!
