Business Interruption Fund spotlight: Cuvee

Cuvee is located along Section 2 of the Purple Line Extension, by the future Century City/Constellation Station. The restaurant was established in 2006 by owner Dodi Maghsoudi, who continues to manage the day to day operations of the restaurant.

Cuvee offers a wide variety of food options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food choices range from fresh fish such as ahi tuna to deli meats, salads and vegetarian meat substitutes. The restaurant offers customers the convenience of indoor and outdoor seating in a common space patio area shared by other eateries, surrounded by high-rise buildings. Cuvee is also a proud participant of Metro’s Eat Shop Play program and has catered for Metro events.

Mr. Maghsoudi has noticed a decline in business as customers find it more difficult to get to his location due to Metro’s construction and detours. However, he is excited for potential new customers with the addition of the future Purple Line Century City/Constellation Station across the street from his restaurant. “Since receiving the BIF grant, I have been able to sleep better not worrying about my cash flow. The grant has allowed me to be creative and reinvest back into my business,” stated Mr. Maghsoudi.

Cuvee is located at 2000 Avenue of the Stars, Suite 35, Los Angeles, CA 90067. Regular business hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.  For more information, please visit or call (310) 277-3303.
