2019 Participating Restaurants + Chefs

No one knows the local food scene like the Los Angeles Times. We hand pick the very best restaurants and chefs to showcase their most delicious culinary creations — from traditional flavors to cutting-edge cuisine. See the L.A. lineup here!


Once again, the Paramount Pictures Studios backlot will provide the perfect setting for this only-in-L.A. experience. And don't miss our second weekend located in the heart of Southern California - The MET in Costa Mesa.


Cocktails as art. Wine insights from masters. Top brews on tap and by the bottle. At The Taste, the sips are as carefully curated as the bites.


Tacos and pho and French cuisine — all in one meal? The dishes are bite-sized and unlimited, meaning there's no end to your flavor experiences until you fill up!
