e3rd: A Unique Steakhouse Experience, Unexpected and Redefined You are invited to a big city culinary dining experience with a small town feel and price. Soon after Jason Ha introduced the Korean-inspired Zip Fusion Sushi in 2002, his unconventional little restaurant became the hit of the Arts District neighborhood and later downtown. Dining was delicious. Dining was fun! That's because Zip unveiled a homey style of hospitality and inspired, original, signature dishes. Customers were able to enjoy world class cuisine at very affordable prices because of the innovative use of Asian and California ingredients by the kitchen design team. Ha himself was honored by the downtown community in 2004 for "taking a dark corner and bringing light to it". With the success of Zip under their belts, founder Jason Ha and his Executive Chef, Sean Ahn, were inspired to pioneer an exciting new direction for the classic American steakhouse. Their plan remained simple: Couple a hip and energetic ambience with a first class culinary experience that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. How is it done? With the same inspired innovation that sparked the Zip kitchen. This time Ha and Ahn use traditional marinating techniques and preparation on full flavor cuts of meat to unleash them into a new realm of tender, juicy succulence. Creative? After all, e3rd is located right n the heart of downtown L.A's art district; home of true original creative force of downtown. Along with exciting food, full bar, and exemplary service, all of our guests will be also enjoy the monthly exhibit of downtown artists presented on black charcoal board.
