Downtown dining on Monday night
Hi all. Opportunity to try one of the great downtown place at last. Will be around the USC area. Have a car, will be with friends from work, money not really an issue, just great food and a nice atmosphere (somewhere between stuffy and scene-y :). Open as far as cuisine except one friend is allergic to fish so if it's a seafood place, it should have other great stuff too. Appreciate any help. Thanks
I'll second, third, whatever, the recs for both Church & State (my personal fave) and Drago Centro. I haven't been to the new Chaya yet, but if it's anything like the other ones, it's a good bet, too.
Drago Centro is on the ground floor of the building I work in, at 5th and Flower. I have not tried it yet, but it looks beautiful and sure gets some good reviews. I mention it because you would not need to drive your car from the USC area: take the "F" Dash, which will drop you right in front of the restaurant. Fare is 25 cents each way, which beats paying for parking.
