What’s Heating Up Los Angeles’ Meals Scene This Month – CBS Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES (Hoodline) – Would you like information on the most talked about places in Los Angeles?
We took a data-driven look at the question and, using Yelp, derived which restaurants were the most discussed this month.
To find out who made the list, we looked at the Los Angeles businesses by category on Yelp and counted how many reviews they received. Instead of just comparing them based on the number of reviews, we calculated a percentage increase in reviews over the past month and tracked companies that have continuously increased their review volume to identify statistically significant outliers compared to past performance.
Read on to see where the swing goes into spring.
