A new gastropub called The Black Sheep is now open on the ground floor of the Pacific Electric Lofts at 6th and Main. We first reported last Oct 2012 that The Black Sheep was replacing the shuttered Blu LA Cafe directly next to Cole’s French Dip Sandwiches along 6th Street. Five months later the new eatery is open serving up a tasty affordable menu including The Black Sheep Burger ($7), the Thai Chicken Burger ($8), and Banh Mi Sliders ($7). Perfect pairing with the food are a variety of drinks including 12 beers on tap.
The owners behind The Black Sheep, Stanley Lin and Steven Seav, are also behind the popular Syrup Desserts located near 6th and Spring. Tuan Thai, involved with the restaurant management, tells me that the entire management of the restaurant “lives and breathes downtown” and are invested in the community and growth of Downtown LA. As a result, they want The Black Sheep to be approachable to everyone, especially to local downtown residents.
The Black Sheep is currently open for dinner until 2am. Eventually, the goal is to open for lunch as well.
