Last week I had the pleasure of attending a really fun event - FIGat7th Speed Tasting. Speed tasting? How is that not a brilliant idea?!
Located in Downtown Los Angeles, FIGat7th is a shopping center with loads of great stores and a stellar collection of restaurants in the most fabulous food court you've ever seen. With eateries including Loteria Grill (one of my favorite LA restaurants), Sprinkles Cupcakes, Morton's Steakhouse and many more - you get to eat really great food in a casual setting!
Kate of Nautical Nature brought me along for the tasting and we were presented with plates and drinks from 15 different restaurants. FIFTEEN! I wasn't able to taste everything, but you better believed I tried. Everything was so good! Because the eateries are upscale I felt like all of the entrees were fancy options similar to that you'd see at a cocktail party.
If you live in the LA area, check it out! You can park for just $5 every Monday-Friday night after 4pm and ALL DAY Saturday and Sunday with validation from a store or restaurant. Located near Staples Center and LA Live, the location is perfect before heading to a game or movie.
