Filipino food‹LASA at elysian

ELYSIAN LA

2806 Clearwater St., Los Angeles, CA

6:30pm

Filipino food is known for its adobos, fried seafood and vinegar-laden dishes with flavors that are bold, bright, savory and, at times, funky. It could be said that it is not a cuisine the general population, even in a food-adventurous city like Los Angeles, explores with abandon. But a young Filipino chef and his brother are looking to change all that.

Through October 30th, 2015, the Filipino inspired pop-up and restaurant project, LASA, will be offering their take on this up-and-coming ethnic cuisine the last Friday of the month at the beautiful bar/restaurant and private event venue, Elysian. Reservations are recommended. Spots can be reserved on Open Table or by calling 323-522-6625. Walk-ins are welcomed and seated on a first come first serve basis.
