Fresh off brand new renovations, the historic Mayfair Hotel in downtown Los Angeles welcomes a new signature eatery that blends contemporary art and diverse flavors. Under the culinary expertise of Chef Karo Patpatyan, LOCALA features a menu composed of innovative twists on some of LA's most iconic flavors.

Blending street classics with fine-dining staples, you can pretty much expect the unexpected when it comes to dinner at LOCALA. Care for a Kobe street dog wrapped in bacon and topped with Gruyere cheese all nestled in a mustard seed bun? Or a pork belly bahn mi braised in luscious Vietnamese caramel and topped with cucumbers, pickled carrots and onions on black sesame bread? Yes, please. 

Dessert follows along the lines of rich Mexican chocolate churro with horchata anglaise and nostalgic warm sea salt chocolate chip cookies with Carmelita chocolate and Scotch vanilla ice cream. You get the picture. Patpatyan offers an edible snapshot of the multi-layered community that is LA with an update. Not to mention, LOCALA's interiors serve as an extension of the Regime Art Gallery inside the hotel so you get to admire art while you eat. With a monthly rotation of curated artwork, LOCALA truly serves as a dining experience.
