Eat! Drink! Comfort LA

Comfort LA is the soul food dining experience that Downtown Los Angeles has been missing. Fresh made, organic ingredients shine from chef and operator Jeremy McBride. The Ohio natives recipes are named after family members whose influences have stayed with him. Comfort LA evokes a feeling of family and well, comfort, exactly as the name describes. Whatever you do don’t forget to try “That Sauce”

Comfort LA is located in the Arts District at 1801 7th street, Los Angeles, CA 90021
