This place is excellent! Great food and service. The New England clam chowder is the best I ever tasted! The Henderson raw oysters are SO GOOD!!! The bread is addicting. A must when in L. A

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
