Los Angeles: Broken Spanish

John Sedlar’s former Rivera restaurant space was gracefully transformed into what’s likely the best representation of the Angeleno food scene circa 2015. Chef Ray Garcia’s casual-yet-refined take on modern L.A.-Mexican cuisine is a masterpiece, with dishes like lamb neck tamales with oyster mushrooms and Oaxaca cheese and camotes (Japanese sweet potato with braised pig tail, trompa, chile de arbol, and verjus) luring diners back to Downtown for a double take.1050 S.
