Discover Downtown Des Moines

Des Moines, nestled deep in the heartland of Iowa, is a surprisingly great place to find new American cuisine. Native-born Iowans and recent immigrants have combined their cultures to create fusion flavors like Polynesian pizza and Asian tacos from the highest quality ingredients. Downtown Des Moines has steakhouses that have high-quality Midwestern beef sitting right next to some of the heartland's best produce. Whether you prefer modern takes on pizza, seafood or pub food, head down East Court Avenue or Locust Street to try some incredible restaurants. Along the river, you can find bars and brewpubs for spending a casual night out.
