There’s a lot of talk about what’s in store for the city’s Historic Commercial Center. It was a community hub when it debuted in 1963 and was previously home to Cornish Pasty, now relocated to the Arts District, and to the original Lotus of Siam — which is still awaiting its reopening. But new life has been breathed into the historic plaza recently. Deadmau5 performed a free show there during the weekend of the Electric Daisy Carnival. And two new restaurants, Arty’s Steakhouse and The Composers Room Showlounge & Restaurant, are on track to open this year.
Here are 9 restaurants that are worth stopping into the center to visit.
