Flor y Solera, a lively new Spanish tapas bar in the heart of the Los Angeles Arts District, opened March 2023. The newest restaurant from Factory Place Hospitality Group, the regionally-inspired concept is helmed by Catalan-born Chef Mònica Angelats and Beverage Director Francine Diamond-Ferdinandi, who created Flor y Solera as a celebration of the vast culinary splendors and distinct nuances of Spain’s 17 regions.
The menu features tapas that take diners on a sumptuous journey throughout the country’s bountiful seas, verdant mountain countryside and sun-kissed coasts with vibrant flavors and dishes rarely seen outside of Spain. Signature dishes include Fideus Rossejats and Cluïsses, a South Catalan toasted noodle dish similar to paella; Migas Camperas, a traditional dish of fried bread and meats from the Iberian Peninsula; Arròs amb Crosta from Valencia; and Suquet of Scorpora, a Catalan seafood medley of Specials that will rotate.
“It’s a dream come true to open a restaurant that represents the dynamic flavors from my home country of Spain,” said Executive Chef Mònica Angelats. “I am proud to welcome Los Angeles to my table.”
Complementing Chef Angelats’ refined, yet approachable cuisine is an exceptional beverage program anchored by the restaurant’s Sherry Bar – a nod to the restaurant’s namesake – where a selection of the Andalusian fortified wine is offered by the glass, flight or with a special tapas pairings.
