Ebanos Crossing Restaurant Review

: Downtown LA's Ebanos Crossing serves up handcrafted spirit-focused libations created by mixologist and Beverage Director Philip Ward (co-owner of Mayahuel in New York.) The bar/restaurant spotlights the spirits encountered on smugglers' routes forged during the Twenties and Thirties along the South-central Texas crossing from Mexico to the United States, with signature cocktails like the "Bear Flag Revolt" with rye whiskey, mezcal, cochi torino, gally-ristretto, and Benedictine. Culinary offerings highlighting the epicurean identity of the region feature baked oysters with habanero lime butter and adobo sauce; medianoche sliders with braised pork, black forest ham, smoked gouda and maple mustard; and paella with mussels, clams, shrimp, chorizo and jasmine rice.
