Tom’s Urban Unveils First California Restaurant at Premier L.A. LIVE Entertainment Destination

New Restaurant, Specifically Designed for L.A. LIVE, Brings Multi-Ethnic Menu, Mixology & Modern Hospitality Experience to Downtown Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES--()--Tom’s Urban, a new modern casual dining restaurant, is set to make its California debut in the heart of Los Angeles with the opening of its second location on Thursday, February 20. Located in the dynamic L.A. LIVE sports and entertainment destination, the new restaurant, anchoring the southeast corner of Figueroa and Chick Hearn Court, will become the dining cornerstone of the venue. Tom’s Urban will feature multi-ethnic urban cuisine, an impressive cocktail and draft beer selection in a contemporary, cool atmosphere where guests can meet, eat and drink.

Tom’s Urban delivers what LA locals have yearned for in an energetic sports bar and modern restaurant experience: a craveable, fun and adventurous menu accompanied by an extensive selection of hand-crafted mixologist cocktails and cold beer served from four full-service bars and a lively indoor-outdoor patio. The bold, highly contemporary 15,000 square foot space is punctuated by 80 high-definition plasma televisions and more than 400 seats for guests, making the restaurant the ultimate sports-watching destination or convenient pit stop before or after a game at the nearby STAPLES Center. The restaurant is also available for private parties of 20 to 400, for those looking to host an exclusive event offering the restaurant’s one-of-a-kind space, casual atmosphere and shareable menu.

“L.A. Live is an exciting new venue for Tom’s Urban and we are delighted to be a part of the resurgence of downtown Los Angeles with the unveiling of our beautiful new restaurant that was purposefully built to fit this location,” said Rick Schaden, Chairman of Consumer Concept Group. “We look forward to opening our doors February 20 and having the opportunity to serve guests the modern casual dining experience they have been craving in this great city.”

The Tom’s Urban menu features multi-ethnic, yet locally relevant modern cuisine from small plates to full entrées guests can enjoy throughout the day from breakfast through late night. Its broad menu is filled with modern versions of classic entrées on its Traditional menu, which features small plates ranging from the All American Cheeseburger Sliders to the Margherita Urban Pizza. The Interesting menu section features items with a twist like the Grilled Croatian Fig Jam + 3 Cheese and the Tailgater Bratwurst Sliders. For guests seeking bold eats, Tom’s Urban also serves a selection of Adventurous plates including the Butter Poached Lobster + Shrimp Taco and the Xiangxiang Crispy Duck Wings. A special “pop-up” menu will also be offered to guests who want to go even deeper into the adventurous side of culinary food. If that's not enough, the restaurant’s award-winning mixologists create and serve a fun selection of hand-crafted cocktails, in addition to an extensive wine and beer selection that is served from over 80 tap handles at the full-service bars.

“We are thrilled to open Tom’s Urban restaurant in the center of the L.A. LIVE campus. We put a lot of thought into the design of our menu so that it would accommodate the sports and entertainment fans as well as those looking to take their time and enjoy a fun and modern dining experience,” said Tom Ryan, founder of Tom’s Urban. “What that means is that if you want to linger and enjoy a diverse culinary experience – stay and enjoy. Our cocktail and beer menu is large and varied in terms of both options and portions. We are designed to give our guests options to get what they need while accommodating the time they have to spend with us.”

Tom’s Urban is owned by Consumer Concept Group, a Denver-based restaurant and lifestyle concept development firm. Tom Ryan is the namesake of Tom’s Urban, and this is the first location to debut outside of Tom’s home state of Colorado.

LIVE. Together the three cutting-edge restaurants occupy the space of the former ESPN Zone and create an unparalled dining destination for guests in this one-of-a-kind lifestyle venue.
