I just moved to downtown LA... (Flower Street)Would love some great recommendations on places to eat and shop?
There is a Ralphs downtown on 9th St. and there is also Food 4 Less. I would also think that you will end up at one or more of the local downtown farmers markets: http://www.ccfm.com/site/locations.php and finally there is the Grand Central Market: http://www.grandcentralsquare.com/
There are a lot of restaurants. Everything from good Japanese to the old standbys like Philippe's http://www.philippes.com/ and Cole's http://213nightlife.com/colesfrenchdip and the Original Pantry http://www.pantrycafe.com/ and on to High end places like Rivera http://www.riverarestaurant.com/ or Patina http://www.patinarestaurant.com/home.php and the Water Grill http://www.watergrill.com/ to a good Brazilian cafe called Wood Spoon http://woodspoonla.com/ to great tacos at the Mexicali Taco & Company: http://mexicalitaco.com/ or the dive breakfast place called Nick's Cafe: https://sites.google.com/site/nicksca... to the Blue Cow http://bluecowkitchen.com/ or the Lazy Ox http://www.lazyoxcanteen.com/index.html or Colori Kitchen http://www.colorikitchen.com/ and the Nickel Diner http://www.nickeldiner.com/ (plus a whole hell of a lot of others).
Bottega Louie, Mas Malo, Umamicattessen, Two Boots, Tiara Cafe, New Moon, Chaya, LA Cafe, and much more (to add to the list above)
