Crack Open These Cookbooks for All-Day Recipes

Plate Staff

Walk through the endless stalls of the 100-year-old Grand Central Market in downtown Los Angeles and you’ll see legacy tenants from immigrant communities nestled next to newcomers with local, sustainable sensibilities. Options from breakfast through late dinner run the gamut from currywurst to two-fisted egg sandwiches, and everything in between, making the market one of the original destinations for all-day dining. We hope The Grand Central Market Cookbook and the rest of our reading list will inspire you to whip up something you can serve all day long.
