Eater Talks: How do LA’s legacy restaurants stay relevant?
Wednesday, April 3 — 6:30 p.m.
Eater LA and the Ace Hotel will continue their ongoing restaurant industry discussion series next month, with a new moderator and new topic: How do LA’s legacy restaurants stay relevant in the modern dining era?
Over the hour-long discussion, panelists from across the Los Angeles dining spectrum will join moderator Farley Elliott for a conversation on media, history, and sustained relevance in a city that is bursting with young talent and national restaurant media profiles. In short:
In the era of social media and lightning-fast news, what about the older, legacy restaurants of Los Angeles? How do places without the buzz or the million-dollar PR account stay in the feed for diners eager to spend their dollars? Or does it even matter, when locals and regulars can keep a neighborhood place afloat for years?
This talk’s panelists include Christy Vega, co-owner of 63-year-old Casa Vega restaurant in Sherman Oaks; Suzanne Tracht of fine dining mainstay Jar; and Ryan Legaux of Jefferson Park Creole staple Harold & Belle’s, which turns 50 this year.
This new Eater LA x Ace Hotel discussion goes down on Wednesday, April 3 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets run $25, and include one drink ticket.
