Breva Restaurant

For a city that didn’t previously care much about hotel restaurants, we suddenly have a whole lot of them, including Breva, inside the renovated Hotel Figueroa. Given that it’s just down the street from the Staples Center, this is a well-placed spot for a drink and snack before a game. The menu is Basque-inspired, with good ham and cheese croquettes, great fried chicken, and a not-very-Basque-at-all cheeseburger that you should definitely order. The vegetable dishes are less impressive, but the desserts are worth leaving room for.
