44 Abernethy’s American 220 N Hope St, Los Angeles, CA 90012, United States https://abernethysla.com/ For an elevated pre-game dinner downtown, the perpetual pop-up machine at Abernethy’s is a uniquely compelling choice. The restaurant at the Music Center hosts a rotating series of up-and-coming chefs from around LA County, turning the whole menu and concept over every couple of months. It’s designed for pre-show dinners, so their hours are short and they’re used to people on a strict schedule, but that doesn’t hinder the cooking at all. Right now Chef Geter Atienza is at the helm, with a bold menu of classic Filipino dishes seen through the eyes of a chef trained in fine dining.
47 Birrieria Gonzalez Mexican 5522 Whittier Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90022, United States https://www.grubhub.com/restaurant/birrieria-gonzalez-5458-whittier-blvd-los-angeles/3273828 It is an empire now, occupying a dozen parking spots and restaurants from Compton to Las Vegas, but Birrieria Gonzalez started with a single truck outside a barber shop just south of the 10-110 freeway interchange. That original location is just minutes from LA Live, and they still serve some of the city’s best birria de res, wrapped in tacos, crunchy vampiros, or gooey quesatacos in immaculate Tijuana style, with styrofoam cups of rich, heavily spiced consomé on the side for sipping and dipping. It doesn’t have the typical trappings of a luxurious celebration, but these antojitos are as restorative and festive as you could want for a big game.
48 Cafe Fig Continental 939 S Figueroa St UNIT 300, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States http://www.cafefig.com/ Cafe Fig is a culinary fusion of Mediterranean, Southwest, and Continental influences, using a health-forward approach to deliver elevated classics.
49 Cara Cara California cuisine 1100 S Broadway PH, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.properhotel.com/downtown-la/restaurants-bars/cara-cara/ If events at LA Live—or on the court inside Crypto Arena—have you stressed out, take a deep breath and try to stay above it all. And then you can literally get above it all at Cara Cara, the rooftop restaurant from chef Suzanne Goin at the Downtown LA Proper Hotel. The eclectic all-day menu features seasonal California cuisine with global influences in classic Goin style, with a particular nod to Portugal and Spain, much like sister restaurant Caldo Verde downstairs. There are tacos, loaded focaccia, tons of vegetables, and large-format proteins coming from the grill, and there are also fun cocktails and a wine list composed almost exclusively of bottles from the Iberian peninsula.
50 Fixins Soul Kitchen Soul food 800 W Olympic Blvd A150, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States http://www.fixinssoulkitchen.com/ The second location of this soul food stalwart from former Sacramento Mayor and NBA All Star Kevin Johnson stands out for well-executed takes that are hearty and fun, from the Oxtails to the long-brined Fried Chicken, which you can get on its own, smothered in gravy, or with waffles. There’s also a vegan menu, a full bar, and plenty of good vibes to go around.
51 Guatemalan Night Market Street Food 1834-1898 W 6th St, Los Angeles, CA 90057, United States https://www.yelp.com/biz/guatemalan-street-food-market-los-angeles For a quick street food pregame meal there’s the Guatemalan Night Market, a loose collection of vendors who set up stands at Bonnie Brae and 6th Street nightly. There are all sorts of Guatemalan antojitos, tostadas, tamales, and the empanada-esque dobladas, plus tons of meat cooking on charcoal grills. With such a vast array of food on offer, that quick pregame meal could easily melt into a long progressive dinner at a half-dozen stands.
52 Katsuya - L.A. Live Japanese 800 W Olympic Blvd STE 220, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.katsuyarestaurant.com/los-angeles Option for acclaimed sushi & upscale cocktails in a fashionable, contemporary setting.
53 La Casita Lounge 939 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States http://www.lacasitadtla.com/ La Casita features a Baja coastal inspired menu by Chef Joana Cruz with ingredient-forward, organic fare paired with unique craft cocktails.
54 Langer’s Delicatessen Lounge 704 S Alvarado St, Los Angeles, CA 90057, United States https://www.langersdeli.com/ If you’re going to an afternoon event at LA Live, you’ve got a golden opportunity to visit an LA icon at Langer’s Deli. Their Jewish classics are uniformly excellent, and if you like beef tongue or chopped liver they are definitely worth a try, as is their underrated Patty Melt. But the reason to come, of course, is the legendary pastrami sandwich. You will probably be advised to get the #19 with pastrami, Swiss cheese, cole slaw, and Russian dressing, and that’s all well and good, but all of those toppings are also gilding the lily—what you really need is a simple pastrami sandwich on their superior rye bread, with a swipe of mustard if you’re so inclined. There may not be a better sandwich in town.
55 Lilly Rose Lounge 813 Flower St, Los Angeles, CA 90017, United States https://www.wayfarerdtla.com/downtown-la-dining/lilly-rose Perhaps the right night cap for your evening at Crypto.Com Arena is yet another show—though one with a little more whimsy than the basketball teams can provide. Lilly Rose is the speakeasy-style cocktail bar and venue underneath The Wayfarer Hotel, where the decor is like a Parisian cafe on the other side of the looking glass and the long, creative cocktail list is the atmosphere’s equal. There are comedy shows, DJ sets, and trivia nights, and their special Mad Hatter-esque High Tea and Highballs runs through the end of October.
56 Mastro's Ocean Club Steakhouse 1200 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.mastrosrestaurants.com/ Mastro’s Ocean Club, the more seafood-oriented version of the popular Beverly Hills steakhouse, has opened a 350-seat branch with an outdoor dining area that overlooks Crypto.com Arena at L.A. Live. Given its prime location, the ritzy seafood and steakhouse will likely be a popular pre- and post-event dining destination, as well as a buzzy convention/expense account spot.
57 Pine and Crane Taiwanese 1521 Griffith Park Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026, United States http://www.pineandcrane.com/ For casually elegant Taiwanese food, it’s hard to beat Vivian Ku’s Pine and Crane. This second location is in an ideal spot, just four short blocks from LA Live in the ground floor of a gleaming new development, with a simple, modern design and big, sunny patio. It is the perfect place to grab a plate of dumplings, a bowl of noodles, and maybe some punchy sauteed greens or an order of Ku’s celebrated Three Cup Chicken. There are also vegan takes on Mapo Tofu and Dan Dan Noodles, a rare treat for plant-based eaters. The cocktails are creative, with a lovely selection of whisky from the excellent Taiwanese distillery Kavalan, and if tea is more your speed their choices are well-worth exploring.
58 Poppy + Rose Comfort Food 765 Wall St, Los Angeles, CA 90014, United States http://www.poppyandrose.com/ The brunch destination near the Flower Market is Downtown’s essential spot for Southern comfort food while the sun is up, especially with their pandemic-born rooftop patio. There are classics like Chicken and Waffles, Shrimp and Grits, and Biscuits and Gravy, but don’t miss their more inventive Southern-meets-SoCal dishes either. Items like a Breakfast Burrito with house-smoked steak and barbecue sauce, Pulled Pork Hash, and the wild mashup of grains, greens, pickles, meat, and eggs that they call their Kitchen Sink Bowl.
59 Rice Box Cantonese 541 S Spring St #131, Los Angeles, CA 90013, United States http://ricebox.net/ Chef Leo Lee was born and raised in Mexicali and trained in elevated French technique, but at the Downtown restaurant he owns and operates with his wife Lydia Lee, the focus is squarely on Cantonese barbecue, the kind both husband and wife grew up eating. The menu is built around rice boxes, and you choose your protein from several fun options. There are familiar flavors like Char Siu, Braised Brisket inspired by Lee’s grandma’s stew, or Soy Sauce Chicken, and there are also modern takes like a seven-spiced, triple-roasted Porchetta, or a vegetarian option of eggplant and shiitake braised and spiced like Mapo Tofu, and on Saturdays they break out their signature Roasted Duck, served with a seasonal chutney.
60 Savoca Italian 900 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.marriott.com/hotels/hotel-information/restaurant/laxjw-jw-marriott-los-angeles-la-live/ Designed in Italy. Produced in California. Serving breakfast and dinner, Savoca features dishes influenced by the Italian tradition of uncomplicated yet intense flavor using regionally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
61 Sonoratown Mexican 208 E 8th St, Los Angeles, CA 90014, United States http://sonoratown.com/ It is fitting that Sonoratown is just a brisk walk from Crypto—they may be the Lakers of the taqueria world. Their tacos are fun and always in the news, with a championship tradition, famousfans, and the city’s undying loyalty. Also like the Lakers, Sonoratown is a family business, a labor of love from Teodoro Diaz-Rodriguez and Jennifer Feltham. Since its inception in 2016, they have been knocking out killer tacos, burritos, and chivichangas in the style of San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, all served on some of the city’s very best flour tortillas.
62 Sonoritas Mexican 1050 Flower St, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.sonoritastacos.com/ The original Sonoritas on Sawtelle won acclaim for its high-quality cuts of carne asada cooked on a mesquite grill and served on handmade tortillas, a clear recipe for success. When they expanded to downtown in the summer of 2021 they added one missing piece—a full bar. Now they have the same excellent carne asada but you can pair it with a selection of margaritas in varieties like Strawberry Basil, Hibiscus, and Spicy, in addition to other fun cocktails and an ever-expanding selection of boutique mezcales.
63 Sparrow Italia Italian 939 S Figueroa St Suite 200, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.sparrowitalia.com/ The Hotel Figueroa is a Downtown landmark, with its three columns of recently renovated rooms looming over the LA Live complex, and its restaurants have become mainstays too. Sparrow Italia in particular has gained a following for chef AJ McCloud’s elevated coastal Italian cooking in a grown-up atmosphere, and new executive chef Joana Cruz has the kitchen buzzing. There are house-made pastas in interesting shapes like mafaldine and radiatore, there is duck prosciutto on the charcuterie board, and the wood-fired oven kicks out everything from pizzas to vegetables and large-format proteins. Don’t miss the cocktails either, which lean into Italian-style amari.
64 Strada Eateria & Bar American 825 James M Wood Blvd #90015, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States http://www.stradadtla.com/ International recipes, tapas & cocktails served in an unfussy spot with a terrace & art exhibitions.
65 The Capital Grille Steakhouse 700 W 9th St Unit B, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.thecapitalgrille.com/locations/ca/los-angeles/los-angeles/8067?cmpid=br:tcg_ag:ie_ch:dry_ca:TCGGMB_sn:gmb_gt:los-angeles-ca-8067_pl:locurl_rd:1060 Outpost of the upscale steakhouse chain offers classic American fare & a clubby, refined setting.
66 The Palm Los Angeles Steakhouse 1100 Flower St, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.thepalm.com/location/the-palm-los-angeles/ Storied chain serving high-end steakhouse fare, seafood & diverse wines in clubby surrounds.
67 WiVu American 900 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States http://www.mywivu.com/ WiVu, located inside the JW Marriott @ LA Live next to Staples Center, is a private media entertainment space. Reserve a 3 hour block of time with friends and family or colleagues and customers. Enjoy watching a wide variety of content including today's most popular movies, hottest comedy and drama series, concerts, and sports just to name a few options.
68 Woodspoon Brazilian 107 W 9th St, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States http://www.woodspoonla.com/ Larger than the contiguous U.S. and with almost 121 million more people, Brazilian cuisine is diverse and vast. The specific perspective of Woodspoon’s Natalia Pereira is rarer still—Woodspoon is focused on the multicultural influences of Brazil’s Minas Gerais region. That makes her menu a melting pot of African, European, and Amazonian influences, among others, which yields dishes like Potato Croquettes, a beloved Brazilian Chicken Pot Pie, and the chicken and okra stew Frango Com Quiabo. The atmosphere is warm and casual, which may be aided by generous pours of the delicious house sangria.
69 Z Falafel Lunch 806 W 8th St A, Los Angeles, CA 90017, United States https://zfalafel.net/ Every weekday around noon, thousands of business-casual office workers descend from their Downtown towers in search of a simple lunch. There are scores of restaurants designed to sate their hunger, but in this crowded field Z Falafel stands out. Chef/owner Tony Zablah forms and fries falafel to order, and he makes all of his sauces and salads in house too. There is fresh-baked pita pulled from a powerful clay oven, and the hot bread elevates their plates of shawarma and kebabs to a special treat, whether you’re heading to a hockey game or back to work.
70 Kai’s Table Comfort Food 1091 S Hope St, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.kaistable.com/ The experience one can expect is an unforgettable one. From the ambiance to the food, down to the decor, Kai's Table is definitely a place where one will want to go time and time again. For Brunch 10am -4pm Saturday & Sunday we are first come first serve.
71 Fleming's Steakhouse - LA Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service 800 W Olympic Blvd Suite A-135, Los Angeles, CA 90015, United States https://www.flemingssteakhouse.com/Locations/CA/Los-Angeles High-end steakhouse chain with aged prime beef & classics such as lobster tails.
