Eating Near the LA County Museum of Art

What are good places to eat for lunch or dinner near the LACMA? Would like something with delicious food. I am traveling to LA for a day to view a current exhibit so want something convenient and casual.

  1. There are a lot of places just north of the museum on 3rd Street and on Beverly. This board posts a lot about those places. There is also the Farmers Market at 3rd and Fairfax. If you've never eaten there I suggest you do!

      What is good at the Farmer's Market?

        Loteria Grill, delicioius Mexican. Amazing. As good as it gets.

    2. The Farmer's Market is a good idea. Otherwise, it depends on what you want. I like Doughboys on 3rd St (just W of Crescent Hghts.). Huge sandwiches, interesting salads, and very good baked goods for dessert. (Although sometimes their bread is a little doughy for me).

      1. I love the Gumbo Pot. It's cajun, and it's very good. They have a big food court with just about every type of food.

        1. Sorry. The Gumbo Pot is in the Farmer's market. Not sure if that was clear from my last post.

          1. I think the best place at Farmers Market is the Brazilian BBQ place. There are a lot of posts on this board about favorites at Farmers Market.
