Los Angeles Guide

Shopping

  • Broome St. General Store

    My new favorite local Silver Lake spot for a quick bite to eat and an assortment of great finds...from vintage candy to organic baby bedding. I love the general store feel with a modern spin and the tasty sandwiches, tarts and cookies, and fried chicken Fridays!

Food

  • Mother Dough Pizza

    Having been an East Coaster my whole life, I've searched high and low for some great pizza since moving to LA. Mother Dough is now my go-to with their thin crust neapolitan style pizza. thin in the middle, doughy around the edge, chewy, yet a bit crisp and toasty from the 850 degree oven. The melted buffalo mozzarella sits on top fresh San Marzano tomato sauce for what tastes like the perfect mix of chewy and crispy crust, fresh and light sauce, and gooey mozzarella cheese.

  • Canele

    I loved the low-key neighborhood vibe mixed with the French influence at Canelé. It feels like a restaurant I'd find in Brooklyn with a comforting ease about it that I just love. My favorites for brunch are the baked pancake with meyer lemon custard, the mixed berries, the house made ginger ale, and the fried chicken sandwich. A new weekly brunch spot? Yes!

Adventures

  • Hollywood Farmer's Market

    There's something about going to the Hollywood Farmer's Market on a Sunday morning that just screams happiness to me. Walking the huge market for the week's groceries while enjoying lunch from a medley of food vendors...it just doesn't get any better.
