The AIA (American Institute of Architects) announce the Los Angeles 2007 Restaurant Design Award winners tonight, and while there aren't many shockers---the design at Tanzore is loverly---one judges' pick for nightclub, Omega, is now a restaurant called Las Papas N Beer, a Mexican joint that opened two weeks ago (a bit of Dish in there for ya). Anyhoo, the winners for restaurant, cafe/bar and lounge/nightclub, coming right up.
