Last Sunday the mild weather of Santa Monica made for a pleasant evening in the courtyard of The Fairmont Hotel where Angeleno Magazine celebrated their annual restaurant issue. Many of L.A.’s top chefs were on hand to serve up delicious bites to Benefit Children’s Institute. Double gold award-winning wines and spirits from the San Francisco International Wine and World Spirits Competitions were also served.

Hosted by Angeleno magazine’s award-winning food critic Brad A. Johnson, who remained shrouded in mystery all evening, and The Tasting Panel’s editor Anthony Dias Blue, the event honored some of L.A.’s top chefs and restaurateurs.

In addition to the award recipients, some of LA's greatest chefs volunteered their time to serve up bites for the guests. After the opening reception, chefs including Susan Feniger from Street, Anthony Zappola from Craft, Ray Garcia from The Fig, Evan Funke from Rustic Canyon and Monique King from Nine Thirty served up generous bites to the appreciative crowd.
