  • 5

See the previous post for a full explanation of the Ultimate Los Angeles Restaurants 2011, and a listing of the Overall Top 25:

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/839271

Given the greatly reduced level of participation in this year's poll, it's probably fruitless to read too much into changes from last year. In particular, to be ranked as high as #23 in the Under $25 poll, a restaurant needed only one vote in the top position of one respondent's list.

Below are the complete tallies, first in the $25 and Over category and then in the Under $25 category.

=======================================

COMPLETE POLL: $25 And Over

The number after the colon is the total points.

The first number in square brackets is the number of voters.
The number after the slash is the number of voters, if any, who gave it five points.

The number in curly brackets is the 2010 ranking, if any. (Note: the 2010 rankings differ slightly from the previously published ones, as some minor errors were found in the 2010 results.)

* Asterisks indicate restaurants that were cited in both polls, but received the majority of voters in this poll. If a restaurant received an equal number of votes in both polls, it was resolved to the Under $25 category.

    1. Thank you Peripatetic.

      Good catch on the prior year Pa Ord ranking.... it was listed twice last year and you added up the scores to properly rank its prior year position in this poll.

      And in the words of McMichael, mea culpa. I was the one who inadvertently included Marche Moderne, a restaurant in OC.

        > Good catch on the prior year Pa Ord ranking

        Wow, you have sharp eyes! I thought someone might notice that Langer's was actually #2 in last year's survey, not #1 as originally reported (!), but not the Pa Ord correction.

        > I was the one who inadvertently included Marche Moderne

        No problem. I should have caught that one. (I was checking each ballot as they came in.). The 2010 survey included another OC imposter: Tsuruhashi in Fountain Valley.

        1. Peripatetic,

          I'm mostly a lurker, but I would be remiss to not at least say "Thank You" for collating all this info. This gives my wife & me a great quick snapshot of places we should try. Much appreciated!
