AIA|LA Restaurant Design Awards

About the Restaurant Design Awards

From elegant outposts of farm-to-table cuisine to neighborhood watering holes that have been refurbished, The American Institute of Architects Los Angeles (AIA|LA) Restaurant Design Awards celebrate design as tantalizing and tasty as the culinary hotspots the architecture envelops.

Now entering its thirteen year year, the 2017 RDA program is an opportunity for owners and designers of restaurants, bars, cafes, nightclubs and lounges, to showcase the design of their premises.
