This restaurant has a disclaimer on their menu that let's you know of the dangers of eating from their kitchen. I give them credit for owning up to their inability to have a safe kitchen. The menu looked great for lunch, but we couldn't try it.

Everything was wonderful, from the old fashioned to the butter cake. We split the buffalo cauliflower with tzatziki, followed by the classic burger with tasty fries. Housemade ketchup was delish! The butter cake was... buttery in the best way. My one complaint was that the chocolate budino (pudding) was overly salty. When we mentioned this to the server, she said... More

Relaxing outdoor seating, dedicated staff, scrumptious food. Our server, Sarah, could not have been more courteous or attentive. She made our visit extra special helping with food choices and LA travel advice.

My friend and I had dinner here on a Friday night. The restaurant was quite busy but the service was still very good. I had Jinhee's Sticky Ribs followed by Al Pastor Shrimp Tacos. Both were delicious. The stand out thing for me was the beer. The Avery Lilikoi Kepolo Passionfruit Wit was sensational. Fruity, but not sweet, it was... More

Early lunch before a matinee. When we arrived there were a couple of tables outside occupied but no one inside. Were shown to a small table in corner and received menus. 20 minutes later no one had returned for order so went to bar to ask for server. Server who then appeared said she thought someone else had taken our... More

After an afternoon at the Broad we asked the docent where to go for a beer. She recommended Blue Cow, where the staff go after work. welcoming staff, happy hour, great draft beers... but the appetizers were the highlight. Devilled eggs like I've never dreamed of and roasted cauliflower done to perfection. What a great place for tourists to linger... More

We stopped here for food and a couple of drinks our first night in LA. We were staying nearby and it looked like a great place to eat. The bar itself is stylish and has an outdoor section which was really pretty at night. A quirky laid back feel- I'm always a fan of this! The food and drink were... More

I work in downtown and was looking for a new place to enjoy happy hour with a friend. I was surprised when we arrived to recognize a previous restaurant's location. Parking was easy and no charge with the entrance on 350 Olive. There was a nice front patio area but it just rained so we opted for inside seating. We... More

Blue Cow is a watering hole for the downtown work crowd and my favorite place to go for a pre-concert dinner. They are set in a sunken plaza outdoors where you are surrounded by skyscrapers. I love being there at sundown, seeing the pink light reflecting off all the glass of the buildings ~ the nights there are beautiful too!... More

Neighborhood Profile
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 in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
