Restaurants are notoriously short-lived, and yet some survive, become part of their neighborhoods, or famous as destinations. Mary Sue Milliken & Susan Feniger‘s Ciudad was a bit of both. It captured the revitalization of LA’s downtown, and served fun Latin contemporary food that married well the surrounding sophisticated Arts scene.
Sadly, Ciudad is closing – but the space is being re-launched as Border Grill Downtown in early October. Time to celebrate the last days of this fine restaurant and possibly win tickets to the grand opening of Border Grill Downtown or a Border Grill Truck Party for 25 people.
