Winners of 4th AIA/LA’s Restaurant Design Awards revealed

The annual Restaurant Design Awards honour distinction and quality in restaurant design, opening the competition to all individuals and practices for projects located in the greater Los Angeles area.

“Dining out in Los Angeles is like going to the theatre,” says AIA/LA Associate Director Carlo Caccavale. “One expects a show. With the ever-increasing popularity of the RDAs, we wanted to provide our members and the public with exactly that, another great show of culinary achievement and excellence in design. We’ve chosen an amazing panel of judges to help us find the very best in the city.”

The scheme recognizes both Jury Award Winners as well as People’s Choice Award Winners, as selected by votes collected on the AIA/LA website for the three different categories: restaurant, café’/bar and lounge/nightclub.

This year’s jury panel was composed of Joachim B. Splichal (Chef & Founder of the Patina Restaurant Group), David Montalba (AIA | Founder & Principal of Montalba Architects Inc.), Michael Hodgson (Partner & Creative Director of Ph.D) and Margot Dougherty (Senior Writer with Los Angeles Magazine). They had the onerous task to choose between 40 entries.
