If you’re in Downtown Los Angeles, it should be a low key crime if you don’t stop at Grand Cenral Market.
Nearly a century later, the market continues its mission:
“Our commitment is to preserve the legacy of a historic downtown landmark, to gather the city’s many communities around a shared table, and to nurture the next generation of local businesses,” the website reads.
It’s a great place to stop for lunch—so come hungry!
If you enter on the Broadway side, you’ll probably notice a long line for a place called Eggslut.
If you like eggs, it’s amaaaaazing and totally worth the wait.
Press Brothers Juicery, owned by two brothers 😉, is located next to Eggslut—and there’s nothing more LA than getting a fresh pressed juice and an Eggslut. Press Brothers sells organic raw juices and cleanses in two different sizes.
My favorite is Liquid Gold and Drop Acid.
And Steve Aoki would agree.
If you like oysters, The Oyster Gourmet is your dream. The menu also includes clams, shrimp and some raw fish (most sourced from the west coast) as well as beer and wine.
Mcconnell’s Fine Ice Creams have been a Santa Barbara staple since 1949. The husband and wife team expanded to Grand Central Market in 2014 to introduce their delicious, scrumptious, fine ice creams to DTLA.
I like the sea salt cream & cookies. Nom nom nom.
If it’s something more savory you’re after, check out Olio Wood Fired Pizzeria (because pizza), Horse Thief BBQ owned by two Texans showing the world that classic smoked meat of Texas, or some Thai comfort food at Sticky Rice that is melt in your mouth good.
