One of the most unique restaurants in downtown Los Angeles, Engine Co.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Engine Co. No. 28 is a step back in time that will feed you very well today.


Built in 1912, Engine Co. No. 28 was at the time the most expensive fire station ever built in Los Angeles and answered emergency calls from July 23, 1913 through 1969. Today the restored building also houses a law firm and theater.
