Which LA Restaurant Should Be in The World's 50 Best?

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Yesterday, San Pelligrino announced the World's 50 Best Restaurants, with Noma retaking the number one spot after losing out last year to El Cellar de Can Roca. However, what's becoming the world standard for restaurant greatness has consistently shut out the city of Los Angeles. Today, Eater asks, which LA restaurant merits inclusion in the grand list? Is it the kaiseki specialist Urasawa in Beverly Hills? Or perhaps Josiah Citrin's tasting menu at Melisse? Vote below.
