AIA LA Announces Restaurant Design Awards
Forget how delicious the drinks or dishes are; the American Institute of Architects in Los Angeles is all about how a bar or restaurant looks. Superficial? Nah. It's a huge part of the dining (or drinking) experience, and the best of L.A. and elsewhere were named and honored by the organization as part of this past weekend's annual Dwell on Design expo and conference.
A panel of professionals, as well as the voting public, helped finalize the winners in a variety of categories. Here's a look at who won locally.
