Best New L.A. Restaurants

Hosted by

Los Angeles Magazine’s Patrick Kuh takes us on a gastronomical tour of the city as he gives us the magazine’s top restaurant picks for 2006 featuring La Botte, Republic, Petros and Hatfield’s

Voted Best New Restaurant by Los Angeles Magazine, Hatfield’s is making its mark in the ultra-competitive and fickle world of fine dining in L.A. The timing seems just about right for the husband and wife co-chefs, Quinn and Karen Hatfield, who met during a stint at Spago, and who have worked in some of the best restaurants in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.  By combining their talents – he oversees the kitchen and she the desserts and dining room – the couple have found a way to keep the restaurant a well-rounded and simple operation, with a small, ever-changing French-California menu and an unfussy décor that lets the food take center stage.
