downtown LA restaurants

Will be in LA for USC parent's weekend, would like recommendations for california fresh food, fun, hopefully not too expensive places to take our son. Coming from the midwest. Love seafood, but Water Grill is probably outside our budget.

    I think Lazy Ox Canteen does well for "fresh."

    1. If your visit will coincide with Dine LA (Oct. 3 to Oct. 8 and Oct. 10 to Oct. 15) then you might be interested in either the fixed price, special Dine LA menu for either lunch or dinner at the Water Grill. See the menu here:

      Water Grill
      544 South Grand, Los Angeles, CA 90071
