Think LA's a one-industry town? Think again. Last year, Baroo, a bare-bones, fermentation-focused spot landed #5 on Bon Appétit's Best New Restaurants list. Then, the city won a record number of James Beard awards. With what Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Jonathan Gold calls "less of a melting pot, more of a glittering mosaic," the LA food scene is more exciting than ever. Follow our tastemakers as they dig into what's new and uniquely Los Angeles.

This place was amazing from beginning to end, but you pay for the privilege of eating here. The bread, the spreads, the edamame, the shishito peppers, the trout, the pork chops, the steaks, the sides, were all delicious and memorable. In fact, the best pork chop I've ever had. Top notch service. More
