For game days and beyond, here’s every vendor you’ll find in this sleek food hall—complete with full bar and beer garden.

It’s no secret that Angelenos love exceptional dining and sporting events. These two pastimes recently combined in one of the city’s best spots to cheer and nosh, the Los Angeles Football Club’s new Banc of California Stadium, and while there’s a wealth of great food within the stadium itself, it now sports its own food hall. Direct your attention to the adjacent and freshly unveiled The Fields LA food hall, where you can get lost in the new 200-seat collection of some of L.A.’s best vendors.

Award-winning full-service restaurants, Top Chefs, mom-and-pop operations and previews of big concepts to come all open up shop seven days a week, from 11am to 10pm, slinging Roman-style pizza, fried chicken, ceviche, baked goods, smoked hummus, frozen cocktails and hearty, steaming potstickers. With all of these options, walking into The Fields LA can feel a little overwhelming; here’s our guide to every concept therein, to help you win big—on or off game days.

Akko Port

What happens when one of Australia’s top Middle Eastern chefs heads to L.A.? You get Roy Ner’s take on falafel, braised meats, laffah and salads with a California twist. The lauded executive chef of Sydney’s Nour set up a quick-hit menu of vibrant, bright fare that’s easy to eat in the stands: laffah rolls with chicken, cultivated yogurt, beet slaw, charcoal eggplant, garlic toum and more, plus organic ancient-grain salads and a smoked hummus bowl so flavorful you’ll be thinking about it days later (trust us on this one). 
 

Al Pastor

If you don’t recognize the name of this stand, the chef’s other Mexican-food enterprise might ring a bell: the celebrated Aqui es Texcoco. Francisco “Paco” Perez brings his expertise to The Fields with street-style tacos, plus a “gringa” variety (that’s cheese, salsa and meat on a flour tortilla) and his famous Alambre blend of bacon, bell peppers, onions, cheese and salsa. Get your veggies in with esquites, an off-cob spin on elotes—maybe snack on a bowl while you decide between al pastor, chicken or beef for your tacos.
