Featured In

Located in DTLA’s Arts District—one of the city’s best emerging neighborhoods for fine dining—Damian is chef Enrique Olvera’s first LA opening following the success of Mexico City’s Pujol and New York’s Cosme and Atla. This semi-outdoor and, shall we say, exceptionally stylish spot is one of those restaurants where everything from your contemporary chair to the dollop of salsa on your plate feels like an aesthetic treat. But all of these refined touches also come with a price, making Damian a great option for special occasions or perhaps a much-needed date night, when ordering in just isn’t the vibe. Here, you can enjoy creative spins on Mexican classics with seasonal California produce, like a soft Tetela stuffed with ricotta, spinach, and poblano chiles; Pork Ribs slathered in mole with a side of kimchi fried rice; and a very tasty Caesar Salad Tostada topped with a generous serving of uni for that little extra slice of decadence.
How to book: Walk-ins accepted, but reservations are strongly encouraged.

Renowned Mexico City chef Enrique Olvera of Pujol fame blends Mexican cuisine with seasonal California produce, along with a dash of whimsy at this Arts District beauty. The outcome is heavy on both veggie-and-seafood-centric dishes like Smoked Clams with chili seed shoyu and cucumber, a Blue Shrimp Gordita topped with avocado-shiso salsa; and Celery Root with Mole Blanco, served in the sleek dining room and on the lush, plant-lined patio.
