Wood Spoon, DTLA

Wood Spoon, DTLA

When I was last in Los Angeles – in August, I had put together a list of places that I wanted, rather needed to feast on. On this list, and near the top, was Wood Spoon. I had heard that this downtown Los Angeles Brazilian restaurant had a pot pie that was worth the visit....

Ciudad is a Latin restaurant located in downtown Los Angeles, which is part of the Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger food empire.

Starry Kitchen, DTLA Los Angeles (Closed)

1. Pick Your “Protein” 2. Pick Your “Vessel” 3. Pick Your “Side” These are the rules as stipulated by Starry Kitchen. If you don’t follow the rules – you’ll get a verbal beating.

Bacaro, Los Angeles

Bacaro, Los Angeles

Bacaro’s been around for a couple of years as a quiet but cool winebar. Perhaps its because I don’t enjoy wine, is why I didn’t look for it. But lately, I have been more daring and wanting to try more wine, with the films Sideways and Bottleshock. Bacaro is on the fringes of Downtown LA,...

Mac & Cheeza, DTLA (Closed)

I’ve been dying to try Mac & Cheeza ever since they had their soft opening during Downtown LA’s Artwalk in February. Stalkingly, I have passed by their little shop about 3 times in the last 30 days or so, just to see if they had opened their doors. And finally, with an email notification, I...

Big Wangs, with a funny name for a Sports Bar, is located in the heart of Downtown LA. I visited there with a friend, Mr. J, for a short happy hour and to just check out the place. The happy hour deals were pretty good along with the appetizer specials. Though I admit we only...
Uncle John's Cafe, DTLA
