FIGS ♥ DTLA

An insider’s pocket guide to the best eats & treats.

The ASPS is in town for Plastic Surgery The Meeting 2016 and we wanted to show them around our hometown. Team FIGS put together this guide of our favorite things to see, do, and of course eat in Downtown Los Angeles. If you visit any of our faves tag us, #wearFIGS, or better yet invite us to join you!

UNDER THE KNIFE

1. BESTIA

2121 E 7th Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90021

“The Beast” is a beauty. Their gorgeous, house-made pasta and pizzas need no augmentation. Pro tip: Give yourself some time, there’s always a line.

2. BAR AMA

118 W 4th St, Los Angeles, CA 90013

It’s all amor for Bar Ama’s Tex-Mex. Some of our favorite post-op comfort food, go for the legendary nachos and Mom’s Green Enchiladas.

3. ADRIAN’S TACO TRUCK

@ Mateo & Bay Street

Our co-founder Trina’s fav, their shrimp tacos are off the charts, as is their famous spicy red sauce that will leave you with bee-stung lips — and a craving for more.

4. EGGSLUT

317 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013 (in Grand Central Market)

Looking for some a.m. cheek fillers? We’re obsessed with their breakfast sandwiches housed in heaven-sent brioche buns. There’s always a line, but it’s worth it.

BETTER THAN BOTOX

5. G&B COFFEE

317 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013 (in Grand Central Market)

Get that “awake” look without the needle. Called the high priests of java, they serve their drinks bartender-style so you can linger with your brew.

6. JUICE SERVED HERE

833 S Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014

People will wonder if you ‘had something done’ after you imbibe one of their customized liquid wonders. Our faves: 04 Green Easy & 19 Charcoal Lemonade.

7. MIKAWAYA IN LITTLE TOKYO

118 Japanese Village Plaza Mall, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Getting a frozen face here is a good thing. Our co-founder Heather’s favorite, it’s also the birthplace of mochi ice cream (really).

SELFIE CENTRAL

8. HOLLYWOOD SIGN
Flaunt your duck lips while flanking this larger-than-life legend for the perfect selfie. At the parking structure @ Hollywood & Highland, take the escalator up to the observation decks (there’s two). On a clear day, the view is picture perfect.

 

POST-SURGERY RX

9. PERCH

448 S Hill St, Los Angeles, CA 90013

Fly up two elevators to this lovely recovery center to toast your new and improved look — and your surgeon — with a Penicillin. (It’s worth it for the swoon-worthy city views alone.)

10. THE STANDARD – ROOFTOP

550 S Flower St, Los Angeles, CA 90071

Who needs nitrous when you’ve got the Standard? Killer city views, a heated swimming pool, red astroturf, topiary animals, and waterbed pods — need we say more?
