Ooh la la! Le Petit Paris has planted its French flag Downtown with a massive—and very Parisian—restaurant. From blinged-out chandeliers to a giant mural of the Eiffel Tower on the wall, there's a lot of glitz and glam going on here. Still, it maintains a suave and sophisticated feel, and there's no denying that the space, with a beautiful bar at the top of a sweeping staircase, is stunning. Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, Le Petit Paris' menu includes a traditional lineup of pastries, omelets, escargots, lobster papardelles and more.



Address: 418 S Spring St
Los Angeles
Opening hours: Mon-Wed 11am-11pm; Thu-Fri 11am-Midnight; Sat 10am-Midnight; Sun 10am-11pm

This space is breathtaking! True opulence from the renovated building formerly known as the El Dorado Hotel. The grand entrance is beautiful: high ceilings with spherical crystal chandeliers; gorgeous artwork depicting images of France; a double staircase that leads to the mezzanine and lush, wine-colored velvet chairs for extra comfort while enjoying your meal.

I've been here for brunch, happy hour and dinner. I even celebrated had a private event on the second floor, Everything is amazing, from the food to the cocktails. Currently, they're running a summer happy hour promotion that offers $1 oysters and $18 bottomless rose. Parfait!


An intriguing French spot in DTLA; hopefully, like fine wine, age will be kind to Le Petit Paris.  The dinner at the institution was nothing standout upon attending some months after opening, and while the space is beautiful, they strangely chose to cover up a lot of the historic decor elements instead of rehabbing them.  To be sure, you can still see plenty historic echoes, but there's also a fair amount that seems like it could've been salvaged as is.  The superficiality of the rehab is only highlighted by cheap, pixellated prints of typical Paris tourist photos on walls, mixed with odd pop culture prints of celebrities.  As it's been over a year since their opening, I'm eager to check them out again, perhaps for brunch, and see if the consistency of the experience has improved.


On Spring Street, in DTLA, next door to the park, we can find, on the corner, a delicious place called Le Petit Paris. Inside it is beautiful and inspiring, and outside, you can sit down, eat your meal, drink a delicious expresso ou mimosa and just relax! The brunch is very good, where you can see that the ingredients are fresh. They don't have a big variety of coffee, but what they do have, is excellent. The service is good, friendly and very helpful. On Wednesdays it’s jazz night and there is a little store with some cute stuff, like jewelry, perfumes and candles.
