Downtown Los Angeles is not the same as it was when Elite Adventure Tours began operations more than 10 years ago. Fine hotels, restaurants and activities now make it a destination for visitors from all over the U.S. and nations around the world. Many of our guests enjoying downtown accommodations are recommending Cucina Rustica to us when an authentic Italian meal is in order. Located at the busy intersection of Wilshire Boulevard (the main street of Los Angeles) and Figueroa (the main street of downtown Los Angeles), the restaurant is easy to find and quite noticeable as you can see from this recent photo. The color, shape and wall garden distinguish it from other urban structures and the proportion of glass windows and the building-long skylight bring plenty of natural light into the restaurant creating a well lit and welcoming dining environment. And then there’s the food. Calling it rustic we have found the meals to be hearty, simple and delicious with salads, pasta and other entrees for everyone from every culture. If you like fine wine with your meal, and who doesn’t, the restaurant has an enviable collection from which to select an appropriate vintage. Perhaps that is the signal we are getting from our guests. Something good for everyone.
