Eating at the all the restaurants in our January guide to L.A.’s best new restaurants is totally doable, but it would take a while and cost significantly more than 80 bucks. That’s where our annual Best New Restaurants Celebration comes in. A mix of honorees from this year and previous years gather in one place to cook up delicious bites of food for you to sample. This year’s lineup of restaurants is pretty epic: Atrium, Bar Restaurant, the Bellwether, Birdie G’s, Bon Temps, Drago Centro, Hippo, Freedman’s, Love & Salt, Pasjoli, Yang’s Kitchen, and Yours Truly. Plus Don Francisco’s Coffee, Maker’s Mark, Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery, Stella Artois, Stella Rosa, and Topa Mountain will be providing bevs.
Stop reading now if you want to avoid culinary spoilers or keep reading for an early look at what the restaurants are planning to serve. It’s all going down on Tuesday, January 28 at Rolling Greens in downtown L.A. Click here for tickets.
