Rivera Restaurant – Downtown Revitalized

It only seems appropriate that the last post of the year focuses on Rivera Restaurant. Rivera Restaurant is one of the cornerstones in the revitalization of fine dining in Downtown LA that started at the beginning of 2009.

Sunday Supper at Church and State

Church and State has received endless praise since Walter Manzke's start and rightly so, the food is good. And that is the saving grace for this bistro.

Grace Restaurant

"Who actually reads foodblogs" posited Sinosoul during a recent dinner at Shufeng Garden.

Assuming there is some truth in that statement (I believe it), then people really only come for the pictures. I'm cool with that.

I share with you Grace Restaurant's Tasting Menu, sans commentary.

My point and shoot perspective. No, there is no food in this post. :)

Lazy Ox Canteen – First Impressions

Now that my office is in Downtown LA, I'm always on the hunt for different places to eat that don't cost an arm and a leg for parking. LOC will probably end up replacing Wurstküche as my go to spot after work for the simple reason that it has a good beer and wine selection and most importantly, good food. Wurstküche has a GREAT beer selection, but at some point you need to have something more than a duck and bacon sausage and Belgian fries.

Ludobites 3.0 – Remixed

I told you Chef Ludo would be mixing things up during this engagement. The second week of Ludobites took eaters from an a la carte to prix fixe menu, due mostly to extenuating circumstances, that being the case of the missing sous chef.

Ludobites 3.0

If Chef Ludo had a rap game, he'd have this track and it'd go "Allow me to reintroduce myself my name is L Oh, U to the D O."

Ludobites 3.0, in which the cock attacks.

Since there will be at least 30+ blogs about this place, what's one more to toss in the heap? When you think about it, isn't that really the marketing genius behind Ludobites?
