According to a 2009 report sourced from Otis College of Art and Design, one in six residents of Los Angeles works in a creative field—and that’s not even counting the hundreds of indisputably creative chefs who have helped Los Angeles restaurants earn global acclaim. Indeed, ask a local to name the best restaurants in Los Angeles and you’ll likely be met with a quizzical look and a dozen counter-questions. Are you looking for red wines and white tablecloths? There’s no beating BOA Steakhouse and its famous bone-in ribeye. How about seafood? Blue Plate Oysterette is one of a handful of renowned Santa Monica restaurants that fit the bill. And the best example of creativity in this city? It’s not a film or a chart-topping song. It’s a simple glazed donut from Randy’s.
