In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened on the Upper East Side of New York City. Having served legions of fans for 25 years, we are thrilled to bring Rosa Mexicano's signature brand of authentic Mexican cooking in a relaxed, stylish setting to the West Coast for the first time. The 205-seat restaurant debuts at L.A. Live, a 5.6 million-square-foot sports and entertainment development in the heart of the revitalized downtown area, alongside many of the city's greatest attractions, including the Staples Center and Nokia Theatre. Bathed in our signature vibrant hues, this location features our award-winning guacamole en molcajete, our signature frozen pomegranate margaritas, modern architectural elements, flexible private dining options and comfortable outdoor patio seating--a perfect environment to introduce you to the festive atmosphere and delicious cuisine of Rosa Mexicano.

Ford's Filling Station showcases simple, exquisite American cuisine with a California flair, sourced from organic, sustainable and local sources, to offer a culinary experience that showcases the city as a culinary capital of the world. Fresh, seasonal cocktails, and a built-in cruvinet offering 32 wines by the glass, round out LA Market’s beverage offerings.

"We had eaten at Ford's when they were in Culver City - and stopped in for a meal before a game at Staples. Had the beet salad and the lamb meatballs...both were excellent! Server was attentive and helpful in discussing the menu."

"I know people who eat at this restaurant for business meetings during the week and really this place...but Christmas dinner was the worst! My salad was pathetic; our friend had to send their meal back to be re-done and after 20 minutes waiting for dessert, (and asking for it three times), it only arrived when it looked like we were going to leave. A complete disappointment. I'm sure the restaurant would claim they were overbooked or understaffed or something, but that doesn't explain the poor food quality or how that can happen on a Holiday when they should be prepared for a full restaurant."

"Our party of four had Thanksgiving here. Everyone was accommodating, but they were so busy, they forgot to bring one dish - is was okay, as we all enjoyed our meals - will go back at a time when it isn't swamped!"
