Historic Brock Jewelry Store Transformed into V DTLA Eatery

Historic Brock Jewelry Store Transformed into V DTLA Eatery

Fast fine dining may sound like an oxymoron, but restaurants like the new V DTLA (v.restaurant/los-angeles) are taking it to task at their more than 5,600-square-foot dual-level destination, situated in what used to be the historic Brock Jewelry store. (It most recently housed beloved Mexican cafe Mas Malo.) Located below Seven Grand Whiskey Bar, the restaurant offers a perfect opportunity for a bang-bang, selling quick-service artisan pizzas, salads, shareable plates and craft cocktails.

Originally built in 1922, the Spanish Colonial Revival space has been delightfully reimagined to include a gorgeous jade bar made from the original jewelry counter; street art by Spanish duo Pichi and Avo; restored ornate ceilings; and a jewelry vault that serves as an intimate private room. The painted foam core-covered walls alleviate some of the acoustic issues previously associated with Mas Malo.

The team imported a custom-built oven from Italy for their pies, and while the slices may not stack up to ones from Ronan or Pizzana, they’re still a great way to pad the belly for a night exploring DTLA. Sourdough pies like the Bee Sting, a now-popular combo made famous by Roberta’s, is made with spicy pepperoni drizzled in honey and is the perfect accompaniment for the playful, locally inspired cocktails like the rum-based Valley Girl, or the Smoking Pot, a refreshing vodka spectacle that comes in a terra-cotta pot billowing with smoke made from dry ice.
