Cole's PE Grill

For us, Cole's is a temple of Los Angles transit history, housed in the building that was once the downtown street car station.


Patina Disney Hall

Michelin-starred dining in the Disney Concert Hall complex. When you see the wine list, you'll be glad you're going Metro.


Border Grill

The downtown branch of celebrity chefs Mary Sue Milikin and Susan Feniger's L.A. brand: fresh, inventive Mexican food for urban palates


Mama's Hot Tamales

Mama's is a cozy, colorful cafe across the street from MacArthur Park. They also hand-make tamales for many of those lunch trucks that roll through the city.

Unreal ice cream flavors, including peppermint tiramisu, Lung Ching tea with ginger and vegan hazelnut espresso...


Gold Line



Mecca for ramen fans in Little Tokyo


Good Girl Dinette

Nonna's Pizzeria

We love Nonna's thin crust pies, and we'd love them just as much if they were flown in from Brooklyn or raised on a pizza farm in North Borneo.


Akbar Pasadena

An intimate New Yorky setting, distinctively flavorful Indian food, each dish redolent with regional spices.


Lazy Ox Canteen

Little Tokyo's hipster bastion of esoteric beer and wine coupled with an equally exotic menu...


Guisados Tacos

These may be the best tacos you'll ever eat: rich, spicy, stewy, adventurous concoctions ladled onto thick, handmade corn tortillas.
