Not many places to eat in Downtown LA have seating outside, so it was nice to be outdoors on a warm September evening. Food was traditional Mexican and tasty large portions. Great service too, so worth a visit if you are staying in the hotel...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
