Dining in Downtown L.A.

Consider our restaurant partners before your next visit to the Ahmanson Theatre or Mark Taper Forum in Downtown L.A. Discounts available at select partners when you show your ticket.

Please note that The Music Center Plaza is currently under renovation. The theatre is open for performances as usual, and the main Music Center garage (under the Plaza) will also remain open during construction. Parking personnel are working to minimize any changes to traffic flow, and signage is up that will direct you along the best route to the theatre. Please visit MusicCenter.org/Plaza for detailed information about the renovation plans, including the latest updates regarding paths of travel and current dining options. We are excited about the possibilities the new Plaza will offer our patrons once renovations are complete.

Cocina Roja, The Music Center's new outdoor Latin grill, inspired by the flavors and unique spirit of Mexico City, is now open for service two hours prior to all performances at The Music Center's Ahmanson Theatre and Mark Taper Forum. Cocina Roja is located on the northeast end of The Music Center campus in the Los Angeles Times Garden courtyard, which is next to the Ahmanson and adjacent to Grand Avenue.
