VALLEY VILLAGE, CA--(Marketwire - October 16, 2007) - Sexy LA, a division of World's Sexiest Restaurants Inc., has issued its list of LA's 10 sexiest restaurants.

Critics have dined at over 200 restaurants in Los Angeles and chosen the top 10 for recognition. They considered such factors as design and architecture, menu innovation, plate presentation, taste, setting, uniqueness, and service.

According to Marc Holland, Senior Editor and Founder of the company, "It wasn't easy and our critics gained a lot of weight... but somebody's got to do it." He adds, "Los Angeles is the eating capital of the world... in fact most dining trends start here."

In response to this honor, Erica Cowen, GM of One Sunset, said, "We are extremely honored to be chosen by 'Sexy LA' as the city's sexiest and best restaurant. Considering the sheer volume of restaurants in LA we are pleased to receive this award... and personally I couldn't agree more."
