Ami Lourie

Wherever you stand on the downtown gentrification debate, there is no denying that revitalization has brought better dining options. Yet few of these new spots capture the funky, art-community feel that made downtown L.A. such a cool place to begin with. Enter Osso — the month-old restaurant and bar from Dana Hollister and Pierre Casanova, co-owners of Cliff's Edge, and new partner Ami Lourie — which takes over the former One Eyed Gyspy space on 1st Street. Refreshing for the neighborhood, Osso is a bohemian oasis geared mostly to locals, with unique, reasonably priced plates and briskly inventive cocktails, complimented by cool décor and local entertainment. --Line Lecaro
