Today on Giving Tuesday, LAist needs your support.

I grew up in Toronto, so while I'm used to the concept of seemingly endless networks of retail shops and restaurants hiding beneath the downtown skyscrapers, I'm not attuned to that way of life here in Los Angeles, where even the word "basement" is cause for a quizzical eyebrow raise. But underground is where you'll find Rowdy Red, a wine and burger bar beneath the high rises of the City National Plaza at the corner of 5th and Flower.

Rowdy Red, named for a variety of heirloom tomato, opened its doors in January 2009, but has just recently launched their wine and beer menu to pair with their all-American food offerings. Recently they extended their hospitality to some folks in the world of food blogging, and LAist was happy to have the chance to check out their offerings.
