Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

You like us... You really like us! Bon Appétit just released their top 50 nominees for their annual Best New Restaurants in America list this year—and five Los Angeles eateries made the cut. And our city had the most nominees out of any other, even beating out foodie areas like Chicago and New York City.

And since our very own Alma snagged the first place spot last year, we hope we can be home to another winner this time around. The list (put together by the magazine's restaurant editor, Andrew Knowlton) included Night Market Song, Orsa & Winston, Q, Trois Mec, and Grand Central Market. The only one that was a little baffling was the Grand Central Market nomination since it's not a restaurant, but more of a space with a bunch of restaurants (good ones, we might add), but we'll take it!

Bon Appétit will announce the winners on August 19.
