Can you TASTE it?

Downtown Los Angeles is continuing it’s resurgence as a world class destination for entertainment. Urban living lofts, premiere sports complexes, nightclubs and restaurants are making Los Angeles a must visit destination for travelers, as well as a favorite spot for locals. With no signs of stopping the growth, a new city center has opened at 7th Street & Figueroa, now known as FIGat7th, This modern retail center features an eclectic mix of eateries that reflect the contemporary culinary landscape that is Los Angeles. That collection of restaurants is called TASTE.

On March 1st, the city was invited to experience a “TASTE of TASTE”. Their collection of boutique eateries featured small bites to be sampled and enjoyed. Our TGIS staff, led by team member Jeremy worked on this event in partnership with  FIGat 7TH, Los Angeles Magazine, Svedka Vodka, & KCRW  Radio.

Jeremy led the design of the bar and lounge, and decor aspects to make this Grand Opening Kick Off unforgettable. TGIS partned with Svedka Vodka  to provide the bar accoutrements. Elevating the excitement of the bar, the TGIS “MIXX’ team was joined by a guest mixologist to serve creative and refreshing hand crafted cocktails to the 400 guests in attendance.

Not only did our staff work with the TASTE Restaurants for the Grand Opening Event, but the TGIS’ Kitchen and staff members added grazing & small plate area’s to supplement the small bites from the new restaurants located at TASTE. It was a thrill that our food was featured side by side with such restaurants as Loteria Grill, City Tavern, Mendocino Farms, George’s Greek Grill and The Flying Pig Cafe.




Not only was there Tasty Bites & Yummy Cocktails but everyone was grooving to the smooth sounds from Guest KCRW DJ, Jeremy Sole. The Grand Opening of TASTE was a huge success. Guests walked away with an indelible memory of the food they sampled, and the beauty of this new center. No doubt they spread the word to all of their friends. We’re convinced that TASTE will be a big hit with the local community and travelers who visit the area. TGIS was proud to be part of such a TASTEful event.
