Sexy Food...Sexy restaurant

Updated: Aug 22, 2019


Totally hidden in a brick building off of Winston Street Blacksmiths is a complete sleeper. Even though its in the heart of Downtown, LA it transports you to another place and time. The decor is on point with its high ceilings, brick walls and detailed touches. The menu...well, the menu is fantastic. The food is all completely made in house from scratch. It not only tastes fantastic, but the plating is gorgeous. This is now going to be one of my go to spots while in downtown.

The menu ranges from Ahi tuna to octopus to fresh pastas to 72 hour braised short ribs. Everything is packed with flavor and the seasoning is on point. I cant wait to come back for the crab cakes, steak and fries and the branzino!

As you can see from the pictures below the interior is gorgeous. It's elegant yet warm and comfortable. My only complaint, and its minor, is the outside hot top tables are super uncomfortable. But still, we looked really good sitting in them!

The restaurant has a brunch and a dinner menu. Also, they have daily specials. From what I hear the specials sell out quickly so thats a huge sign that they are worth getting early. Don't think about going on the weekend without a reservation. To be safe, make one if you're going during the week. There is a parking lot directly next door to them, but watch to see how much they are charging. If its over $10 there's one at the end of Winston and Main for $10.

I'm definitely coming back again and again. I love this place!

The food at this restaurant was provided complimentary or at a discounted price, however all opinions are 100% mine. A free meal does not buy a good review.
