In order to maximize participation, Chowhound's Ultimate Los Angeles Restaurant Poll will remain open until the end of the day on Tues Dec 6. All replies are welcome & you may reply here. Responses already received are posted below beginning on Nov 28. Here are the rules again:
Everyone is asked to list, in rank order, your top 5 restaurants in LA County that you would recommend to houndly out-of-town visitors or to chowfriends for a special occasion. Your ranking should be based 75% on food and 25% on everything else.
To participate, reply with a list of only your top 5 choices, 1 being best. This is what we used to call in school a forced-choice exercise. Responses with more than 5 choices will not be included. Replies with fewer than 5 choices will be tabulated. A simple list will suffice, but any & all explanation is welcome.
