Just a couple of weeks ahead of the launch of this year's first Restaurant Week, dineLA has put together a local "Chef Family Tree" which charts and honors chefs, their eateries, and the influential link between today's hottest new names in food and their mentors. While we've just got a screenshot to act as a teaser, dineLA's site offers a more interactive experience where you can discover the links between restaurant and chefs past and present, as well as take a look at the connections between chef and restaurants.

“There is just so much inter-connectedness between the chefs and the restaurants of Los Angeles. We wanted to show how far back the lineage really goes,” dineLA director Carrie Kommers told the LA Times' Daily Dish blog.

dineLA's 2010 Restaurant Week runs Jan. 24-29 & Jan. 31-Feb. 5. Check out the participating restaurants, make your reservations, and get out and enjoy some of our city's best eats.
