Bottega Louie – The Downtown residents’ favorite

One of the favorite dining hotspots of downtown LA residents is Bottega Louie. 

When major redevelopment began in downtown Los Angeles at the turn of the 21st century and residents began repopulating the downtown core for the first time in decades, many downtowners were without high-end yet casual dining options that can be found in abundance in other parts of LA. Dining options were generally limited to either traditional formal restaurants or small take out chains, all of which catered to the office crowd and closed early. 

But in 2009, Bottega Louie changed this dramatically, ushering in a dining revolution in downtown LA. Bottega Louie is a combination of a restaurant, which serves Italian and French influenced food, and a patisserie and café. The menu highlights include their designer pizzas, which are large and a perfect sharing item for large parties (I recommend the tartufo pizza), and various gourmet small bites which can be ordered like tapas.  

The restaurant space itself is beautiful. Located on the ground floor of a historic building, the restaurant has 20 foot high ceilings (at least) traditional marble tile floors, floor-to-ceiling windows that directly face 7th Street and Grand Avenue, and brass fixtures throughout. The space is enormous and seats 225 patrons. It is a comfortable and generally enjoyable place to dine even as it is frequently packed with customers.

And although there are now many neighboring restaurants to choose from, Bottega Louie remains a favorite of downtown residents.
