When it comes to launching into a new year, “out with the old, in with the new” applies to a great many things, but we have to disagree when it comes to dining. For proof, just take a glimpse at our favorite dishes of 2017. This year we snacked, sampled and went all-in on a number of modern L.A. classics, from brunch stalwarts to cocktails that haven’t budged from their menus in years. It was also a banner year for new restaurants, and food historians may in fact look upon 2017 as The Year of Italian Food in L.A.—fittingly, this year’s list includes a heaping portion of hand-shaped pastas and blistered, wood-fired pizzas, all thanks to some of the city’s finest chefs taking to the Tuscan Hills, Bologna and Italian beaches for inspiration. 

Use our favorite 2017 dishes as a guide for 2018, and years beyond; we’re fairly certain that this year's “new” will become the future years’ “old” that we’ll never want to see leave L.A.’s menus.
