The 13 Most Intriguing New Chefs in Downtown

A favorite place in Downtown to grab tacos is preparing to close. Chef Ray Garcia’s B.S. Taqueria is ending its four-year stint on Seventh Street on April 13, after failing to lock down a new lease with the space’s landlord.

A representative for the restaurant cited a “change in the real estate landscape” as a contributor to the decision. Garcia opened B.S. Taqueria in 2015.

It remains unclear if he will look for another location in Downtown.

“Chef Ray Garcia and his team love being a part of the DTLA community and invite Angelenos to continue to enjoy the taqueria in the coming weeks,” a statement from the restaurant read.

The move does not impact Garcia’s other Downtown restaurants, Broken Spanish at 1050 S. Flower St., and the Staples Center outpost of B.S. Taqueria. Eater LA first reported the news.
