From painters to chefs, documentary filmmakers to dancers, the population of downtown Los Angeles is an eclectic mix of artists and creators of culture. In this episode of “The Special,” we tour the city with entrepreneurs who are making L.A. a thriving destination for art, design and food. Join our host Minya Oh, a.k.a “Miss Info,” as she tours us through an urban farm, an apron factory (with a zipline) and the Los Angeles Flower Market.

We’ll sit with creatives from the neighborhood, including entrepreneur Ellen Bennett, and artist Stephen Seemayer, as the chef Josef Centeno artfully prepares a meal incorporating the area’s freshest ingredients in bold and unexpected ways.

BMW’s first ever X7 inspired “The Special” by bringing together a new collaboration between two expert storytellers — The New York Times’s T Brand Studio and The Infatuation for the first time. Together, they examine culture and food in a way that only they can. Sponsored by BMW.
