Last weekend we traveled to Los Angeles for the 2nd Annual Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival, an upstart bacchanal programmed with cooking demos, private lunches and tasting events held on the plaza at LA LIVE in the city’s downtown neighborhood. But we also hit town to visit restaurants. As many as we could fit in, including trips to Spice Table, Superba, The Parish, Animal and Red Medicine. Here are some highlights from the trip, as documented through our Instagram account. You can follow us @foodrepublic.
