Top 10 Best New Restaurants Celebration 2018


Los Angeles magazine’s January issue was brought to life with the fourth annual Top 10 Best New Restaurants Celebration. The culinary tasting was held at ROW DTLA, which was transformed into a bistro park with views of the Los Angeles skyline. Past and present “Top 10” honorees sampled their gourmet signature dishes including:

  • Baja Big Eye Tuna Ceviche from Rosaliné
  • Meatballs with toasted focaccia from Cosa Buona
  • Sfincione with stracciatella from Felix Trattoria
  • Sweet Potato with puffed wild rice from Kismet

The tastings were paired with handcrafted cocktails from Sespe Creek Distillery, Tequila Partida, and St-Germain, craft beer from Duvel, and wines from Lasorda Family Wines, Topa Mountain Winery, Vitagliano Winery, and Jardesca. Guests shopped artisan goods from ROW DTLA Collective, enjoyed cookie shots from The Dirty Cookie, and revitalized with KeVita.
