I stumbled on Panini Cafe years ago and I've addicted ever since. The Mediterranean food is fresh and perfectly prepared and so economically priced, you'll be hooked. It's right downtown and has the wonderful energy of a city that's alive and doing things. So outside...More

Food was fresh and tasty, service was not much besides efficient. Go for the skewers particularly the chicken or lamb.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
