New Food Hall The Fields LA By Banc of California Stadium Opens Tomorrow
The Fields LA, a new food hall next to Banc of California Stadium, opens tomorrow. The Fields will be open every day for both lunch and dinner regardless if there are games or not. So if you’re in the area for Los Angeles Football Club games or museums such as the California Science Center, Natural History Museum. How about an easy way to tailgate for football games at the Coliseum for food that goes beyond just hot dogs. It’s also a great option if you go to USC and/or live in the neighborhood.
I love that there are some great drinks at at the Fields. Frozen options like mai tais and they’re craft cocktails by Nick Meyer and Julian Cox. Wine was curated by Taylor Parsons.
Craft beer options… you won’t see any big corporate names here. I spotted some nice mezcal and Scotch options as well. Eventually a beer garden will open on the roof with plenty of space for events. And look out for an upstairs restaurant with chef Timothy Hollingsworth coming soon. In the meantime, he’s got a cool fried chicken sandwich place called CJ Boyd’s Fried Chicken downstairs. It’s named after chef Timothy’s grandfather, Cecil.
I really like the nod to our Los Angeles culture with tacos from Al Pastor, everyone’s favorite birria burritos from La Palma and incredible ceviche from Coni’Seafood.
There’s also some stellar Chinese American cuisine from Shirley Chung from Ms. Chi’s Cafe. I dug her chow mein and beautiful teas. The white peach and whipped cheese topped teas are hot trends from Asia!
And chef Jason Fullilove’s Barbara Jean popup has found a home at The Fields. Get his soul food with market fresh ingredients here.
Chef Chad Colby will open a new restaurant in Hancock Park called Antico later this year but until then, he’s serving pizza and more at Piccolo Antico Pizzeria and Foccaceria.
With LA’s love of middle eastern food, it’s no surprise Akko Port is a big hit. Israeli-Australian chef Roy Ner is a newcomer to LA’s food scene but not for long with his creamy hummus and tasty eggplant dishes. I also enjoyed the falafel.
The Fields is a spacious place with lots of seating. I went to USC and still am in the area often. I’m adding this to my lunch rotation!
See you at the grand opening on August 14.
3939 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90037 (next to Banc of California Stadium)
