Blacksmiths Restaurant Review

: Blacksmiths in DTLA brings elevated New American fare to The Jeffries lofts building. Expect industrial luxe d├ęcor in a sprawling, airy, 5,000-square-foot space, highlighted by a vaulted ceiling and chandeliers, a long bar and a back patio. A menu from chef Edgar Ramos (La Piazza) features braised bone-in short rib, Spanish octopus salad, beets and burrata, saffron black truffle fettuccine and roasted branzino. A prominent bar showcases a craft cocktail beverage program from Deysi Alvarez (Rivera, Picca) with signature specialties like the "Speaking in Tongues" made with Old Overholt rye, Fernet, lemon juice and smoked honey. Look for happy hour and late-night hours with the kitchen open until 1 a.m.
