Dine LA: Faith & Flower

Dine LA Restaurant Week runs from January 17-31; the restaurant list is pretty extensive, there's something for everyone on every price point in every neighborhood for you to enjoy. My family and I chose Faith & Flower for our first restaurant on the list to also celebrate my daughter's graduation from trade school.  

Faith & Flower Los Angeles is located on 9th & Flower in downtown's South Park District in the WaterMarke Tower building. Designed by AvrKODsign, their decor reflects elements from two Renaissance periods - the 1920's and modern day. What better way to start 2020 than having fine cuisine by an establishment that pays homage by combining both antiquity and modernity of both eras. 

Filled with floor to ceiling decor with over the top chandeliers, mirrors, sunbursts and mirrors. Green goblets adorn the tables with velvet touches featuring a hard to miss entire wall of doors collected from the 1920's. It is sheer elegance!

I give Faith & Flower a solid 5 stars  for  their California craft cuisine and vintage authenticity of ingredients. More is more in terms of the flavors, I found there were many layers and textures offered a successful experience for my first pick for Dine L.A. Their cocktails were amazing and the dessert was tasteful. 

Fun fact - Flower Street used to be Faith in the 1920's! 
Watermark Tower was built in 2009, featuring 34 stories that are 395 ft high!
