Los Angeles Top 25 Restaurants: May 2016

Los Angeles isn't called the "City of Angels" for nothing — with thousands of top-notch restaurants, LA is food heaven. But which brands reigned supreme as consumer paradise? We present to you the May 2016 Los Angeles Top 25 Restaurants, ranked through the social consumer data by Foodable Labs.

No. 1 on the list Ink., known for its hip, airy, and minimalist design and cutting-edge, New American fare.  Since the last release of the LA Top 25 rankings, Ink. has made an impressive jump from third to first. But what is even more impressive is the return of this month's No. 2 restaurant, Orsa & Winston. This artsy eatery, one that serves up creative a Asian-Italian menu, last appeared almost a year ago in the June 2015 Top 25 and has made a dramatic comeback at second place.

But while some may have fallen in performance, such as the formerly No. 1 Spago now at No. 8 and previously No. 5 Butchers & Barbers now at No. 11, others like this month's No. 4, Gjusta, have reasons to celebrate. Gjusta, an artisanal bakery that bakes up special breads on-site, climbed up an admirable 16 places from its No. 20 ranking in the last LA Top 25. And we can't forget to congratulate Alimento on its debut appearance on the Top 25 at No. 6.
