One of the greatest things to do it LA is to eat! Yes we have so many places to go to around the convention center but I wanted to suggest some of my favorite place!
One of my new favorites is Hotel FIGUEROA. Hotel Figueroa has been a den for downtown LA since 1926, and went through a major renovation
or as we call it here "FACE LIFT"
I was lucky enough to be at the opening party last month and visit the new bar/restaurant , beautiful rooms and see the amazing art that hanging all over the main lobby and corridors . It is a special place to sit around after a long day at the conference and have a drink and enjoy the surrounding!
I highly recommend to go to the Bar upstairs and enjoy the view of the pool and taste really good food!
Opening Party at Hotel Figueroa (939 S. Figueroa)
The Perch LA
Roof top sitting at: 448 S Hill St.
Glamorous rooftop setting with French small plates, handcrafted cocktails & grand views of the city.
Great atmosphere as well as tasty food.
The Dessert Gallery...At 700 grand street
Italian restaurant, gourmet market, and French patisserie located on the ground floor of the Brockman Building (just around the corner from Whole Food)
Great food and amazing desserts...Just come by and look at the desserts and you feel like going to a dessert gallery. Place is fun but a bit noisy. If you need to talk business with a future client might not be the perfect place.
LA Live: $$$
If you want a fast break from Adobe MAX food you can try the restaurant in LA Live. Here are 3 that recommended..They might be a bit pricey but very convenient!
If you love high quality sushi, try dining at Katsuya. This sushi restaurant with several locations was named Southern California’s Best Sushi Restaurant (by an L.A. Times Readers’ Poll). Master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi creates unforgettable rolls, sashimi dishes, and more.
For a more straightforward American menu, check out Rock’n Fish, a bustling eatery known for steaks and seafood. Rock’n Fish is also known for outstanding artisanal cocktails, so it’s a good place to stop if you’re looking for a happy hour drink or a late night beverage.
When you want close the night within a hidden oasis, head back to Hotel Figueroa for poolside dining at Veranda. A light and fresh, Coastal Mediterranean menu makes abundant use of seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. The bar takes its queues from European cafe culture with the Aperol Spritz, Milano Torino and other poolside friendly cocktails.
Another area to explore is the restaurant around the Art district. A longer walk or a short Lyft/Uber/Taxi ride.
Bavel: Art District DTLA 500 Mateo Street
Bavel, in Downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District, is a Middle Eastern restaurant from Chefs Ori Menashe and Genevieve Gergis. With family roots in Israel, Morocco, Turkey, and Egypt, Ori and Genevieve have always wanted to open a restaurant that showcases the cuisines of their family lineages, bringing together the flavors and dishes they grew up with. I ate there few weeks ago - and it is just perfect!
The restaurant was selected as one of the18 best new restaurant in America!
If you do not have reservation you can sit at the bar. Try to reserve the balcony sitting it is less noisy. I loved the lamb dishes, the salads and the pita is out of this world...(And I know since I am from the land of Pita)
Was not that crazy about the dessert..So went to
Salt & Straw
Home made Ice Cream just around the corner and it was just perfect.! (I had the coffee flavor..But try the others..It is so good!)
Salt & Straw 829 E. 3rd St.
Trendy Italian restaurant from an acclaimed husband-&-wife team Ori Menashe and Genevieve Gergis highlights creative seasonal fare.The concept for Bestia juxtaposes decorative contemporary elements against a raw, industrial space dripping with character. This approach pays homage to sophisticated modern-day Italian spaces, which often integrate contemporary interiors into centuries-old structures. Strong, traditional building materials such as tile, steel, marble, and wood also provide pops of festive color.
Special dishes and great atmosphere. and yes you might need reservation!
I am going to add more places in the next few weeks! Please feel free to recommend your favorites!
There are so many good place to eat!
Cheers till next time!
