LA GRAND EVENT ... a pleasant surprise in downtown Los Angeles

On the corner of Seventh/Grand (where there used to be some flower/gift shop previously) is now a very pleasant restaurant -- LA GRAND EVENT.

Tried it twice now for lunch and once for breakfast.

I can heartily recommend the Lobster Ravioli and the Burger (get it with the carmalized onions and ask for a helping of the lemon/garlic aioli).

Companion had the Cashew Chicken, which looked mighty fine, but a bit heavy. Sort of a grease bomb garnished with cashews.

Good breakfast fare as well ... the chocolate croissants are more like dessert than a breakfast food item. Coffee is nice and strong.

Oh, and lest I forget, homemade lemonade!

      It's been there more than a year; I've been there a few times, and I thought their food was wildly uneven...
