Dining near LA Convention Center

alohaanna Jun 3, 2008 03:16 PM

I am an LA native but haven't been downtown lately since all the renovations. I am going to a Convention this week and would love to try out some new places within walking distance as I am going to take the metro there.
Any cool new spots with a great bar or anything exotic is always good. Budget not really an issue as much as good food and atmosphere, though I love cheap eats anytime!

    Most of the new restaurants in this area are still under construction. Restaurants that have been open for quite some time are The Palm and Liberty Grill. Much newer and a little bit more of a walk are J Lounge and Tranquility Base. Also within walking distance are: The Pantry, Riordan's Tavern, Roy's and Zucca. A little further at 7th and Fig are Adoro, Arnie Morton's & CPK. Newly reopened in the downtown area is Wokcano at 7th and Flower. Seven Restaurant at 7th and Grand is also very new.

    More reasonably priced and a longer walk - Colori Kitchen at 8th and Olive, Woodspoon and L'Angolo (further east and an 9th St) and Tiara Cafe.
