Providence, Gjelina lead TripAdvisor restaurant poll
What do tourists think are the best restaurants in Southern California? According to the Traveler's Choice Awards given by Trip Advisor, a website/app, they are Providence, Gjelina, Osteria Mozza and the Bazaar by José Andrés. Hard to argue with any of those. Coming in right behind, though, are Bottega Louie, RockSugar and Katsuya. Hmmm. But then the voters redeem themselves once again with the rest of the top 10: Water Grill, Pizzeria Mozza and Angelini Osteria. See the whole list here.
