Pearl's Liquor Bar

If you ever doubted LA's streed cred when it comes to food, look no further than this past year. In 2013, some of the highest culinary awards were presented to Los Angeles chefs and restaurants; Downtown LA was named one of the best places to visit because of its food scene; and—personally speaking—the editors at Time Out LA had some of the most memorable meals at new eateries popping up in neighborhoods across the city. For our Readers' Choice awards, we're asking you to meet the outstanding new restaurants and bars that have opened in the past 12 months, as well as the chefs who made a considerable impact. Vote for your favorites and find out who wins on May 12.

CAST YOUR BALLOT HERE

*Voting ends April 21 and the winners will be announced on May 12.
