The Resy Guide to 2022 James Beard Nominees in Los Angeles


After the most unusual two years, the annual James Beard Awards are back to their regular schedule of nominations, which means it’s time to check in on your local favorites among the newly announced semifinalists.

This year’s class in the Los Angeles area includes a new-age Thai staple, an exceptional Southeast Asian brasserie, a deeply personal Mexican destination, and more.

Finalists will be announced in March, and awards handed out June 13 in Chicago. The local Resy restaurants that made the cut are listed below; find the full national list here on the Beard Foundation website.
