It's almost too hard to choose which place to eat but there are so many good options (even the ones without long lineups). It is quite crowded and it's hard to get seating so just be wary of that. If you have a stroller, make sure it's a small one or just carry the kids - it is hard to... More

This is such a quaint fun indoor market with a variety of food stands. I tried Salvadoran food which was delicious and sampled some amazing ice cream. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend for a casual brunch or lunch.

hands down the best market I have ever ate at int he states. great authentic Mexican food, and many other ethnic foods. a wide varaity just rey and not eat too much at each booth, look for small servings so you can eat your way across or youll have to come back again.

Great food, fresh produce and everything in between. You could easily spend a few hours here and do so numerous times before you get through everything here. Top place

This is usually one of our top recommendations for our hungry friends and family visiting LA. We absolutely love the exciting eateries at GCM and most of the time, we get several plates to share. The variety of foods really showcases the diversity of LA. This place is also great to stop by for any meal - breakfast (Wexler's, Eggslut,... More

Although I would have loved to try more and different foods , we were here only for one meal. I chose the Tacos as i wanted local food. I had 3 different ones ( Pork, Beef & Chicken ) ...all deliciious and very filling. Other option were burgers, eggs, and much more !

Definitely stop by this market/food court place for a meal. So many options such as Japanese, sandwiches, pizza, and Eggslut! Perfect way of killing time if you're trying to get into the Infinity Room at the Broad!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
