How global can a foodie get in an area essentially bound by the 10, 110 and 101 freeways? Completely global. With its massive influx of full-time residents in recent years, Downtown Los Angeles has sprouted dozens of restaurants offering an international range of cuisines, while maintaining culinary landmarks that harken back to its all-business days. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, your palate can taste the world at numerous options throughout Downtown L.A., often within a few blocks of a Metro Rail station.
The Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board is making it easier than ever to discover L.A. without a car. Car Free L.A. features a series of self-guided "car free" vacation itineraries that offer a new way to experience the hidden gems of L.A.’s diverse neighborhoods via foot, bike and Metro.
