Wurstküche Restaurant: Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles

Last month, I joined my co-worker Brian, along with his wife and kids, for dinner in Arts District - downtown Los Angeles. A stop sign outside where we ate was covered in both graffiti and stickers. Looks a bit more like political commentary than gang activity.   

Dinner was at Wurstküche, located at East Third and Traction Streets, with outdoor dining along the East Third. 

Inside, Wurstküche specializes in grilled sausages and imported  beer. 

Lots and lots of choices: Vegetarian Italian. 

Vegetarian Mexican Chipolte. 

Kielbasa, which is pretty standard. My relatives - proudly Polish American - would probably go for this. 

There's also higher end: Duck & Bacon with Jalapeño Peppers. 

Or if you're really adventurous: Rattlesnake & Rabbit with Jalapeño Peppers.

Once you order, they grill it up for you. 

$75 for a bottle of Belgian "2012 St. Bernardus"? Seriously?

While most beers are $9-$12 - which still seems like a lot - they also feature $3 Pabst Blue Ribbon for the rest of us. 

Inside, waiting for dinner. 

I LOVE being not only with co-worker Brian and his wife Christina, but with their three kids. 

They work as campus ministers at USC, located just south of downtown Los Angeles, and made the intentional choice to live close to campus and students. And, yes, the fact that there were crayons and butcher paper was a smart choice with kids. 

This wasn't the kids - apparently, who ever was the table before us had a bit of artistic talent. After all, this is the Arts District, right?

Outside Wurstküche. Here's a link to their website. 

Brian and his family wanted to get dessert down the street, giving me a few minutes to explore the neighborhood. More on that next time.
