Dinner at Rivera


Our little work group went out for dinner last night at Rivera in downtown Los Angeles. It was delicious! The ambiance is warm and posh, the food is unbelievable and the chef and waitstaff look like they stepped out of the pages of Vogue Dining. If you're looking for a perfect Los Angeles culinary experience you can't do better than this.

Rivera Restaurant
1050 S. Flower Street #102
Los Angeles CA 90015

I forgot to take pictures of the lamb chop because I ate it too fast. Whoops. But here are some pictures from the evening. We did a tapas sampler/appetizers evening but of course you can do a full dinner, too.

Min, Joe (whe arranged the entire evening) and Chef chat about dinner.

Best salsa I have had in years.

Cool plate stencils made of chocolate and spices.

Corey and me.

Dessert, apparently these pictures are out of order..

Jen with chef John Sedlar.

Jennifer and me.

Roasted red pepper with cave-aged Gruyere and chorizo.

Hot and cold soup that you drink. Indescribably tasty.

Lovely Min with her handmade corn tortilla, they press fresh flowers into each one.


I'm hungry all over again!
