Here goes our take on Los Angeles theme restaurants:

Son of a Gun: This eatery has been around only since 2008, but in a very short time frame it has encompassed most prominent national recognitions like Food & Wine Best New Chefs of 2009, Wine List of the Year by GQ Magazine and two James Beard nominations, Rising Star Chefs by Star Chefs. Chefs Vinny Dotolo, and Jon Shook have started it as comfort dining space but it shot into limelight with its exemplary Mediterranean seafood theme.  The menu changes with every season and you can’t stop raving about the choice of dishes chosen by the chefs to welcome the guests.
