The Annual Guide to Essential Local Dining Has a New No. 1
The Los Angeles Times has published
"Let us address the spaceship in the docking port here," writes Gold in the latest edition of the guide. "…not everybody is going to be ecstatic that we are naming Vespertine the best restaurant in Los Angeles." With that, Providence ends its four-year streak in the top spot and takes silver on Gold's list. Spago, two decades into its second iteration, rounds out the top 3.
Gold's restaurant guide documents L.A.'s culinary culture through a collection of new capsule reviews paired with images from The Times' renowned photographers. The digital edition allows consumers to chart their courses throughout the year using an interactive map. The Times' Daily Dish will feature coverage from the 101 throughout the week, highlighting the top 10, new entries to the list, where to get the best for the least money, and select cuisines and dishes.
