May marks the return of Food Bowl, the month-long food festival presented by the L.A. Times. Now in its third year, the festival overflows with amazing events to fill Angelenos with the best, most innovative food and drink offerings in this fine city and beyond.
Things kick off with Mesamérica L.A., the first incarnation of chef Enrique Olvera’s symposium to be hosted outside of Mexico. Olvera and L.A. Times Food Editor Peter Meehan’s collaborative program explores the culinary and cultural connections forged over the last 50 years between Mexico City and Los Angeles.
After the Mesamérica event wraps up, the festivities will continue at DFiesta at the Grand Central Market and La Cita Bar. After cocktails at La Cita, attendees can trek over to Grand Central Market and purchase whichever culinary delights they find most appealing while enjoying roving Mariachi bands and Mexico-inspired fun.
Grab an $85 ticket to receive a curated selection of one-night-only offerings from:
Ditroit (Olvera’s forthcoming L.A. taqueria) X China Cafe
Campobaja (Mexico City) X The Oyster Gourmet (featuring Sanctuary Oysters by Sol Azul)
