A restaurant/supper club across the street from Disney Hall in downtown L.A., First & Hope's menu is almost as eclectic as its mixed aesthetics, which channel lounge-y jazz bars and glitzy nightclubs. A Southern-influenced menu of mac 'n' cheese and beer-can chicken also ranges into the gourmet, offering flatiron steak and meatloaf with foie gras.
