5-Star restaurants in Los Angeles

MD. Badsha

Star ratings have become commonplace on menus in restaurants across the country. In fact, some health-conscious consumers may be surprised to learn that some restaurants don’t even have ratings. Please don’t feel sad; when a restaurant doesn’t have a rating, it doesn’t necessarily mean the food is bad. But a 5-star rating means that’s exactly the kind of food the restaurant is known for and is typically a phrase used to describe a restaurant’s overall quality and offerings. 

 Looking for the best places to eat in L.A.? Here are 5-star restaurants in Los Angeles

A vast, multiethnic metropolis, Los Angeles is known for its exceptional dining. The world-famous food critic Jonathan Gold chose it as the world's No. 1 food city in 2012, and according to Zagat, L.A.’s top-rated restaurants are as good as any in the world.

But there’s so much more to L.A.’s cuisine: more than 60 culinary traditions and 300 farmers' markets, much featuring farm-to-fork freshness.

Plan a meal among the rolling hills of Topanga Canyon, in the San Fernando Valley, or on the Santa Monica Pier. Or sample regional specialties such as avocado toast, chilaquiles, and elotes, corn on a stick eaten with lime juice. 

 Housed in a discreet white tower in Beverly Hills, La Placita serves exquisitely prepared Spanish cuisine.

La Placita in Beverly Hills is all about the details. The chef, David Muñoz, cultivates relationships with local farmers but also enlists the help of a professional chocolatier. The restaurant’s servers wear custom-made uniforms. And 10,000 species of cuttlefish are displayed on tableside screens.

But chef Muñoz’s signature feature at La Placita is the staff. “This is my 10th restaurant,” he says, “but all the staff is like my brothers.”
