Here are the 2010 results of Chowhound's Ultimate Los Angeles Restaurants poll in the over $25 per person category (see the top 10 restaurants under $25). As is expected, many of these restaurants cost well over $25 per person (one of the most popular photos on Urasawa's Yelp profile is a receipt for over $1,000). Pricey joints The Bazaar and Providence also made the list.
The guidelines for voting:
"The concept is simple: everyone is asked to list, in rank order, your five top restaurants in Los Angeles County that you would recommend to houndly out-of-town visitors or to Chowfriends for a special occasion. Since we worship at the altar of deliciousness, your ranking should be based 75% on food and 25% on everything else."
