Downtown L.A. restaurants dominate Restaurant Design Awards' list of finalists

Bottega-Louie

This year marks the first nationwide Restaurant Design Awards. The awards will be bestowed upon the lucky winners by the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles on Friday. Hopefully, a number of you fine people have already voted for your favorite contender. And I trust you used your discerning taste to vote for a local. The local finalists are listed below, with commentary by me. (Because you care what I think. Yes, you do!)

Restaurants:

Cafes/Bars:

Lounges/Nightclubs:

The fact that downtown L.A. accounts for more than half of the local finalists is a bit of a coup. It is true that a whole bunch of restaurants have opened in the area lately. Can we dub downtown a design mecca? I love dubbing things. Look for the list of winners to post here at The Dish at 7 p.m. Friday.
