MacArthur Park/Westlake (all located on 7th, West of Alvarado)
Antojitos Bibi – Authentic Honduran cuisine. Open early for a pre-ride/walk pupusa (vegetarian style too!). 2400 W 7th St # 109, L.A. 90057 – at 7th and Parkview – across from MacArthur Park.
El Pulgarcito – Never had Salvadoran food? Problem solved. Fantastic seafood and soups, not to mention the “lomito de puerco al carbon” of dreams. 2226 West 7th Street, L.A. 90057
Downtown (all located on/near 7th, between Flower and Spring Street)
Casey’s – Irish Pub a block north of the route on Grand Ave., they are open early on Sunday’s, so after burning those calories biking, chow on some fish ‘n’ chips, shepherd’s pie, bangers & mash, and ice cold Bass Ale. @213Nightlife 613 South Grand Avenue, L.A. 90017
Mas Malo – want to “leisurely” enjoy CicLAvia? They’ll be happy to assist in on your day of rest. The sister to its Silver Lake counterpart used to be jewelry building from the 20s. We don’t play favorites, but when you do walk in, refuse a menu and just order the carnitas marinated with Coca-Cola and OJ. Trust us. And note the ceilings after downing a shot of handcrafted mescal. @MaloRestaurant 515 West 7th Street, L.A. 90014
Seven Grand – we encourage responsible CicLAvia participation, so responsibly stop by a downtown favorite. The establishment isn’t normally open during the day, but wanting to accommodate thirsty Angelenos, it’s the ideal place to relax. @213Nightlife 515 West 7th Street, 2nd Floor, L.A. 90014
Fugetsu-Do – insane mochi, strawberry anco, and basically every other Japanese treat you can think of. With a bakery in back, all items are fresh, delicious and probably motivate you to get seconds. 315 East First Street, L.A. 90012
Angel City Brewery – the Los Angeles-based brewery comes to Downtown, in its new 2nd and Alameda home. While still a work in progress, take one minute to veer off the route, view the space and take in a pint. Brewer Michael Bowe has big plans for the establishment and he’s more then happy to share his vision. @AngelCityBeer 216 South Alameda Street (at Traction), L.A. 90012
