Let's do lunch -- in downtown L.A.
It used to be that dining options in downtown L.A. were slim pickings. If you were called downtown for jury duty, or City Hall business, you'd better have had a PB&J with you. No more. As Jessica Gelt writes in today's Food section cover story:
In recent years, downtown has evolved into one of the most exciting dining scenes in the city. And while highly praised restaurants such as Rivera, Church & State and Lazy Ox have drawn much of the attention, there are plenty of terrific restaurants that have been waving their soup spoons for posterity, largely unnoticed by popular blogs and tastemakers.
Be sure to check out the photo gallery and the map that goes with. And if we missed any of your favorite downtown dining spots, let us know in the comments section below. You know, so we can go "research" them.
