In an era where eating out is entertainment and diners tweet photos of entrees, Southern California restaurants are about more than food. The Los Angeles area is home to iconic fast food innovators, family-run restaurants of every ethnic stripe, and competition-winning restaurateurs who become household names.

A successful dining establishment is also a business enterprise associated with high risks, hard-earned rewards, and the need to comply with numerous federal and state regulations.
