3 days in Sunny Los Angeles: Where to go, what to eat
On a very short trip to sunny Los Angeles, I was determined to fit so much in so little. It was a business trip, no time for the tourist route so I decided to enjoy my short time with a few dining and wining hot spots. Where the Californians go? Where they eat?
For a lazy afternoon walk the choice is Venice beach, Abbott Kinney in particular, along with its small shops and cafes. Also a good Fit for instanationals. We were there to do a professional shoot so on the contrary to my usual- oh, so I look horrible -kind of photos here are some good ones.
I ate and drank at few good places that you can definitely stop by. One place that I couldn’t give a try but definitely stays on my wish list is the vegan Butcher’s daughter. By the way this place definitely reminds me of Damien Rice’s Blower’s daughter and I keep singing I went to Green Leaf for a quick snack and cocktails and I was petty satisfied.
But, boyy what a sunset. You take world’s worst photographer and you get Richard Avedon out of him/her. See the proof
For dinner Soho House is a very viable option but getting in is really tricky. You should find a local or be a member yourself. But if you can get in, it is worth it. Food, ambience and clientele equally good. And it wont cause a fire in your pockets, a major plus for LA.
My second choice for dinner was The Ivy, an LA classic and a celebrity hot spot. And it did not dissapoint. Food well done , cocktails welldone, vibe dazzling and then what else you would need?
For breakfast I find two spots that I really like. If you are around Rodeo Drive try Chaumont great pastry, decent coffee and egg dishes.
And if you are around Sunset Boulevard, or wait a minute I changed my mind, even if you are not around still go to The butcher, The baker and The capuccino maker. I loved it. Sit outside on the patio, wear your lazy sunglasses on and chill just like Californians do. perfect for brunch or a smaller breakfast.
In the end you cannot go completely wrong in LA, you just need to relax a little.
The cool factor…Sunny everything
