    Every dish in the five-course tasting, in fact, is a small revelation (a dessert made out of brie creme, apple butter and toasted barley? Yes, please). The wine list, too, has matured into a thing of beauty, completely worthy of the food it complements.

    It's a dining room that's regularly perfumed with black truffles, where waiters excavate Santa Barbara spot prawns from hot salt and plate them tableside, where a German-engineered cheese cart glides around silently - it's a place for quiet decadence.

    Goin's food does something that seems effortless but is incredibly difficult, especially with the kind of consistency and duration she has managed.

    Half of Bäco's menu is dedicated to Centenian vegetable creations, each one a quiet triumph. Japanese eggplant comes as tender as pudding, set against the cooling snap of cucumber, with creamy feta and cipollini vinaigrette for added contrast.

    It's the fact that they do all these dishes so well - there's an underpinning of technique and thoughtfulness that permeates everything coming out of this kitchen.

    Talk to any 10 food obsessives in L.A. and approximately eight of them are likely to name Night + Market as their favorite restaurant. This goes for chefs and civilians, culinary explorers and trend followers alike.

    Some of this is a purist's sushi, but some is also beautifully vegetable-focused, with occasional odes to tomatoes and mountain yam and Japanese squash.

    At once comforting and exciting, it was one of the best things we ate all year. The quiet room and thoughtful service make this one of L.A.'s most exceptional dining experiences.

    Daily specials might range from tuna poke - a bowl of raw tuna spiked with yuzu, shiso from Sqirl's garden and tuna-skin chicharrón - to handmade pastas, as good as any in town and for a fraction of the price.

    The trendy room and offbeat service barely make sense with all this high-concept food, but if an adventure on the plate is what you're in the mood for, Red Medicine's oddities are absolutely worth abiding.

    It's a thing of true beauty. Since beginning in Boyle Heights, Guisados has since spawned a second location in Echo Park. And in a town with a huge variety of tacos, they both sit at the very tippy top of our list of favorites.

    As other restaurants come and go (including Sedlar's own Playa, some dishes from which have happily been assimilated into Rivera's menu), it has become a mainstay of Los Angeles cuisine.
