Fashionable and friendly, serving up inspired contemporaty American cuisine

Source: Otium

An elegant dining spot in Downtown LA, you are more likely to see couples on a date rather than the stroller set, but the casual atmosphere and loud, open space makes it a spot you can successfully navigate with young kids. The menu offers lots of small plates to choose from that show off the sophisticated flavors of each dish.

What to eat? We never pass up a chance to enjoy grilled octopus, and Otium does it well. We enjoyed the Broccolini and cauliflower, as well as the bucatini and lamb from the larger dishes. And do explore the tasty cocktail menu.

Pipsqueak tip Watch the excitement in the open kitchen, and afterwards head to The Broad contemporary art museum next door.
