We would like to thank KNX1070 radio host, Frank Mottek, for inviting GAYOT.COM, represented by Sophie Gayot, to talk about what is happening in Los Angeles on the dining scene during the one-hour “Money 101” show on Thursday, December 22, 2005, at noon.

From left to right: Frank Mottek, Ludovic Lefebvre, Sophie Gayot, Stéphane Clasquin and Gérard Ferry

To join her in the studio to discuss this ever endless topic, Sophie chose a trio of celebrated Los Angeles chefs, Gérard Ferry for L'Orangerie, Ludovic Lefebvre from Bastide and Josef Centeno from Meson G.

In their own words, the chefs described their different styles of cuisine, while Sophie explained why it might sometimes be difficult for restaurants to stay in business in the City of Angels. She also gave a list of interesting places to dine out, all for a different reason. Many calls also came in from listeners suggesting their favorites dining spots. L'Orangerie maître d', Stéphane Clasquin, gave a hint on how to get a table at a fully booked restaurant (just call late in the afternoon of the same day).

Below is the list of restaurants that were mentioned during the show.
