      There are a few sushi places on there from other cities.

      No love for providence?

    2. Providence ? Saam ? Hatfields ? Melisse ?

      1. Reads like the writer just looked at city search from an apartment in new york to make this list.

              And yet, you can't look away...(don't you hate that)

              1. re: Servorg

                Yeah, kinda like what's causing stoppages on freeways. "Don't look - keep your eyes on the road... coming up on it - don't look - don't look - don't look... ooooh - I could use a sofa - d'oh!"

                Maybe I'm becoming a curmudgeon-in-training...

            2. This list is complete shite! Controversial comment #1, LA doesn't have 10% of the top 100 restaurants in America, not even close. All those places are good, not great (though I love Bazaar and Jitlada). And Mozza, can we get some seasonal specials and changes to the menu, please? CC #2, Melisse and Urasawa are the two best high end restaurants in LA (and I'll give a nod to Providence also), a town which does much better at the low end than the high end. None of those three made the list. CC #3, Italian food is generally a weak link in LA, and does anyone even put Valentino in the top-5 Italian restaurants in LA any more?
