Andrew’s Cheese Shop

Andrew’s Cheese Shop

WHY Individual cheeses and party platters from one of L.A.’s most passionate cheeseheads.

Wine, beer and [...]

Scarpetta

Scarpetta

WHY The pampering, the prestige and the people-watching. Also the spaghetti with tomato and basil, which is as good as its $24 price tag would suggest. WHAT Scott Conant’s unfussy Mediterranean fare appeals both to the conservative older crowd and the moneyed young bucks who frequent this deluxe hotel restaurant. The kitchen shines at pasta, [...]

A three day sesh of surf and sun worship.  (Let’s just say your mermaid auditions have been very, very thorough.) That doesn’t mean your penultimate summer days [...]

Street Food, Tunes & An Open Bar

Street Food, Tunes & An Open Bar

There’s no denying that street food is some of the best in the world. Something about being outside just makes it taste better.

Tables are always filled, so make a reservation. Once you [...]
