I am a food snob. I admit it! This place has personality and so does the food. Fat fresh and delicious! Try the Shrimp Sandwich aka El Pesco. Take a few simple ingredients and make something great! I'm not a drinker but the cocktail menu...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
