Where is the Ultimate 2011 Los Angeles Restaurant Poll???


I look so forward to that every year.

  1. I was just wondering the same thing. I think we've lost maxzook -- a longtime regular contributor, he hasn't posted since last July. :(

    It's a little late, but if there's interest, I'd be prepared to conduct the poll using the same excellent methodology maxzook used.

      Well then here are my top 5

      Osteria Mozza
      Angelini Osteria
      Hungry Cat (Santa Monica)

      1. re: Cosanostra

        Note that maxzook had it split into two categories: "$25 and under" and "over $25". Here's last year's announcement:

        (Naturally your selections would all fall into the "over $25" category!)

        If there are enough expressions of interest, I'll start a new thread with the instructions and take it from there.

        1. re: Cosanostra

          I thought it was a bi-level thing; five under $X and five over?

          1. Thanks for your ballots so far. I'd be grateful if you could repost them to the "official" poll thread I just started:


            Apologies for the inconvenience, but it will help keep things simple and transparent, and make it clear how many hounds are interested in the poll (for better or worse!).

            In fact, it would be helpful if the moderators could lock this thread.
