Los Angeles Gay Restaurants Guide

Dining OUt in Downtown Los Angeles - A guide to Gay Restaurants

Lesbian chef Susan Feniger and her business partner Mary Sue Milliken are TV's "Too Hot Tamales" and the force behind Ciudad (445 S. Figueroa St; 213-486-5171; $16-28). The flavors, from across Latin America, are as bold and bright as Ciudad's décor. If you don't know what tamarind, yucca and chimichurri are, you'll find out. Tuesday nights: Paella on the Patio.

Don't be intimidated by the approach to R-23 (923 E 2nd St; 213-687-7178; sushi $4-12, other plates $12-16, in a warehouse-looking district surrounded by artists' studios. Inside, it's a super-stylish sushi joint (you sit on cardboard chairs designed by Frank Gehry), in a spot-lit, art gallery setting, all of which draws a celebrity clientele.

Among the dozens of restaurants in L.A.'s Chinatown, Empress Pavilion (999 N Hill St; 213-617-9898; dinner entrees: $8-$26, average per person for dim-sum: $10-15) proves that size does matter. Its massive room seats hundreds at a time, and on weekends every seat is taken during dim sum brunch: shrimp har gao, bbq pork buns, and dozens of other dumplings and small plates. Dinner: Peking duck and elegant seafood.

And if you like your meals with a side of history, Phillippe the Original (1001 N Alameda St; 213-628-3781; $3-8) has been around since 1908; it invented the "French dip" technique for roast beef sandwiches. Order one (or any of dozens of other sandwiches and salads) from the counter, sidle up to a table on the sawdust-covered floor, and wash it down with nine-cent coffee. No, really.
