The Downtown Los Angeles food scene is a bubbling pool of places to go. Most major LA food brands have opened up an outpost in the area in order to connect with this new, hungry audience. One place that has withstood time’s test is humble industry veteran Rivera from Chef John Sedlar. It’s a place that marries modern Mexican cuisine with a Los Angeles lightness to it. The restaurant is a fine dining destination and is one of the most beloved in the city: that is why we had to take a peek inside the place, to hear more on their process and how they make.
We have some very exciting news to share. First, it is our second birthday today on LAIY. Seriously! This little site started on October 3, 2011—and look how far we’ve come! After nearly a year in development and months and months and months of work, we are finally ready to present you guys the start of a very new extension of LAIY’s mission of sharing stories of creatives, makers, and special people who make Los Angeles: we’d like to share the first in of our new series, LAIY Video. Our first subject is Sinclair Denim and co-founder Vincent Flumiani who gives us a peek into the Sinclair world. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a look into the world of jean making in LA.
