The convenience of the location (in the middle of Music Center Plaza) and immediate proximity to the Dorthy Chandler Pavilion, Mark Taper Forum, and Ahmanson Theater will cost you: small plastic cups of wine ($13) and a plastic covered tray of prepared cold crudités ($12)....More

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
