Helmed by Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, Animal opened in 2008, yet still boasts a minimal outside presence with no signage — but if you’re a proper L.A. foodie, you know where to find this 50-seat restaurant located in Mid-City. Animal boasts a delicious social presence, and features local farms and restaurants on their website, proving that community is important. (We can dig that.)
There are more than a few new first-time contenders for May’s L.A. Foodable Top 25 — Congratulations to Trois Mec, SQIRL, Red Medicine, n/naka, Lucques, Night + Market, and Lukshon!
Some big movers within the rankings from last month include Gjelina, Republique, Bäco Mercat, and East Borough.
