Los Angeles Top 25 Restaurants: September 2014

What were September's most talked about restaurants in LA, one of the busiest culinary scenes in the country?

This month's LA Top 25 list consists of primarily veterans. The no. 1 restaurant Bäco Mercat returned last month placing 15th, after a few month hiatus. Bäco Mercat, known for the “bäco,” their signature flatbread sandwich, returns victorious this September with the high social score of 179.84. Only .01 points behind is the restaurant Red Medicine at no. 2. Some familiar names returning are Trois Mec at no. 7, The Factory Kitchen at no. 9, Spago at no. 11. 

Two new restaurants have made the September list, the Latin American restaurant Rivera at no. 8 and the Guisados, famous for their tacos at no. 15. As evident from this month's list, it seems that LA consumers can't stop get enough of international flavors.
