You’ve probably heard people refer to Downtown Los Angeles’s Financial District – but maybe you’re not familiar with it. That’s why we’re here today with your friendly neighborhood guide to the Financial District!

Think of it as the Los Angeles version of Wall Street – but with way better restaurants and loads more culture! For example, head over to Drago Centro for some of the best Italian food in town! This is Italian food done right – as Chef Drago takes the freshest, highest-quality ingredients and turns them into something so delicious it defies explanation! (Although, clearly, the explanation is that he’s a darn fine Chef!!).

If you prefer Asian, head over to Chaya Downtown. Chaya fuses Japanese and French cuisine and have been doing so since the original Chaya was opened, back in Kamakura, Japan – IN THE EARLY 1600s!!!! Now THAT is some serious history! You’ll also find a summer beer garden here. It’s highly recommended.

Continuing your neighborhood guide to the Financial District we arrive at a sky-high restaurants with views to die for (especially if you get too close to the edge). 71 Above is a superior restaurant that is literally built into the top of the US Bank Tower and the views are amazing! In fact, from the restaurant you can see all the way from the Inland Empire to the Pacific Ocean – a view that extended for literally miles and miles! Be aware; it’s not cheap!
