Los Angeles Top 25 Restaurants: April 2015

It’s great to see you again, Los Angeles!

Since our last Foodable Top 25, there have been tons of new restaurant and bar openings in the area, making for an interesting list this month.

April data shows that AOC falls off the throne and down to No. 8. Bäco Mercat and Sqirl, which held the No. 2 and No. 3 spots last time, also make their way down the list, to No. 6 and No. 12, respectively. 

So, who took it to the top this month?

Wolfgang’s Spago, that’s who. 

With an impressive climb up from No. 17, Spago hasn’t even made it into the Top 10 since October 2014. And this is the first time the restaurant has been ranked No. 1 on LA’s Foodable Top 25. Steered by the legendary Wolfgang Puck, Spago takes California cuisine to the next level in a fine dine setting using a farm-to-table philosophy with a simple design aesthetic to complement the guest experience. Spago is co-owned by Barbara Lazaroff, and Lee Hefter is Executive Chef and Managing Partner.

Also on the list this month, we are excited to welcome some Foodable Top 25 first timers, three of which broke into the Top 10! Welcome Butchers & Barbers, Stir Market, Status Kuo, and Gjusta!
