I really enjoyed the selections we had despite not remembering the names of them. The one that really sticks out the most had raw or seared fish with guacamole. Anyway, am looking forward to going back and trying more of their food.

Met family at Baco Mercat for a fun Friday night dinner. Comfortable, lively atmosphere; knowledgeable, polite servers; graciously accommodated nut allergies; food very well prepared and served quickly. Ordered several unique and unusual dishes that were a big hit with the family.

if you like crispy pig ears, they are pretty good here. The grilled skirt steak is a good choice as well. I wish I could rank it higher... but it is pretty expensive for the portions, also the wait is SUPER long if you don't...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
