The ever-busy Artisanal Brewers Collective team has worked up another lease for themselves. This time they’re taking over some space inside Downtown LA’s Corporation Food Hall, the blossoming micro-restaurant site near Spring and 7th.

It’s not exactly clear what ABC will do inside Corporation Food Hall, but there are a few clues. First is the space itself, which consists of a handful of open stalls serving a variety of dishes, from fried chicken to pasta. There’s a circular bar tucked into the back that still hasn’t opened, and could be perfect for ABC’s expertise in the beverage world.

There’s already an activated Alcoholic Beverage Control license for the property, a single-use permit for the entire address that has Tony Yanow’s name literally written all over it. The permit allows for full alcohol as a Type 47 On Sale General Eating Place, meaning there must be some combination of food and booze under one roof. Could that mean ABC is, in addition to the other tenants, going to offer some of its own fare? It’s unclear.

So far, the ABC team isn’t saying exactly what they’ll be doing, within what kind of timeline, or even exactly where inside they’ll be at Corporation Food Hall — not that moving quickly or making big splashes has stopped them before. This is the group that snatched up the Downtown bars of Acme Hospitality, recently unveiled a Belgian brewpub up in the Valley, and keeps letting the turtles loose on Lincoln Boulevard. They’re also close to opening a spot on La Brea, and continues to operate The Stalking Horse restaurant and bar out in West LA.
