24 Best Restaurants in Downtown Los Angeles to Try Right Now

Over a decade since its initial revitalization in the late aughts, Downtown’s dining scene shows no signs of slowing down. Over the years, the number of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood has snowballed, growing in size and diversity with redevelopment in Downtown’s historic core that spread to the once all-industrial Arts District—now home to some of the best restaurants in the entire city. 

Walkability and better public transit access across greater Downtown makes it easy to hop from the Fashion District for L.A.’s best tacos to classic sushi in Little Tokyo, before doubling back to pick up a takeout chicken pot pie from one of the best Brazilian restaurants in L.A. Whether you’re looking to splurge or save for a rainy day, here’s where you should be eating the next time you head Downtown.
