“We are looking forward to again partnering with Dwell on Design to produce the Restaurant Design Awards,” says Carlo Caccavale, Associate Director of AIA Los Angeles, who has announced that awards will again be presented in the following categories: Restaurant, Café/Bar, and Lounge/Nightclub. Last year’s winners were A Frame, Beachwood Café, La Birreria, La Descarga, Le Zinque, Salvage Bar, Take a Bao, and Talisker on Main.

Ahead of the awards, meet the finalists as they reveal their designs onstage Friday, June 21, with host and Restaurant Design Awards jury member Margot Dougherty, a journalist and food writer whose work has appeared in, among many others: Dwell, More, Condé Nast Traveler, and Los Angeles Magazine. Dougherty’s fellow jurors include Warner Ebbink of 101 Coffee Shop, Dominick’s, Little Dom’s, and Tom Bergin’s Tavern, and AIA architect George Kelly, the recipient of numerous Restaurant Design Awards.
