Need fine dining near Staples Center

zarandle Mar 26, 2008 09:58 AM

Am traveling on business tomorrow to LA and need a good place to eat within walking distance (~1mile or so) from the Staples Center.

Any cuisine is fine and prefer to have a decent wine selection.

Any ideas is are appreciated.

      Roy's Hawaiian, at 8th & Figueroa. I can't comment specifically on their wine list, though, since I usually get a cocktail instead of wine.

        Water Grill might be worth the walk.

        Water Grill

          Agree that Water Grill is the best restaurant downtown, but that's a pretty long walk (by LA standards at least).

            I would do Roy's with no clear second.

              I would recommend Roy's also. The wine list is decent, and there are some surprisingly good choices by the glass.

              Arnie Morton's is just a block further up Figueroa -- between 8th and 7th. I've nerver looked at its wine list, but with the steak emphasis, I'm pretty sure it has some good reds.
