The Hollywood Reporter Names LA's Top 25 Power Lunch Spots Of 2014

What do you get when you bring together 250 top industry players, including studio heads, A-listers and big-time producers? Well, you get the city of Los Angeles for one, but you also get their compilation of the city's top 25 power lunch spots. From The Hollywood Reporter comes a list of restaurants where "relationships are forged, deals are done and checks are fought over."

Taking the top spot for the second consecutive year is Soho House, the members-only outpost of the private London social club. The rest of the list features a mix of overpriced salads, ritzy Italian fare and a plethora of big-name diners (though FR friends David Myers and Nancy Silverton make the cut, for Hinoki & The Bird and Pizzeria Mozza), respectively. There are some restaurants on the list that out-of-towners are bound to recognize, such as The Ivy, Mr. Chow, Fig & Olive and The Palm. Other observations include the word "billion" appearing just as often as "million" and a healthy contingent of restaurants with the zip code 90210. Here are the top 10 that made the cut; for the entire list of the top 25, plus interviews with agents and Hollywood stars about their favorite haunts, check out The Hollywood Reporter Power Lunch Los Angeles special.
