Located near the site where Los Angeles was founded in 1781, LA Plaza's 2.2-acre campus includes two historic and newly renovated buildings (the Vickrey-Brunswig Building and Plaza House) surrounded by 30,000 square feet of public garden.

LA Plaza Cocina is a unique space that expands the role of LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes in sharing stories about Mexican, Mexican-American, and Latina/Latino history, art and culture. LA Cocina is a museum, the first one of its kind focused on Mexican cuisine; a teaching kitchen dedicated to exploring the rich culinary traditions and treasures of Mexican and Mexican American cooking; and a store where Angelenos and visitors will find rare and high value culinary-related ingredients, cookbooks, decorative items, and utensils used in preparing the complex cuisine.
