Best of the Westside 2016
HERE’S TO A JOB WELL DONE …
Argonaut readers know what’s good, and our Best of the Westside voters have chosen a memorable class of 2016. From Santa Monica to El Segundo and everywhere in between, the results of our annual readers’ poll showcase hundreds of local institutions worth celebrating.
Also tossed into the mix are a handful of editor’s picks highlighting cool places with really unique offerings that don’t fit well on a ballot — the Best Dinner in a Jar, for example.
Thank you, voters. And congratulations to all of our winners. Keep up the good work!
