Ok so here's the deal, I eat out.... I eat out a lot. My busy, on the go lifestyle, truly limits my home cooking. I know it's bad for you, but lets be real, it can be quite enjoyable. Since my move back to LA, I've frequented a few new spots and they have become my favs.
BOTTEGA LOUIE - What a wonderful restaurant! I loved everything about it. The architecture and design of the restaurant was so bare but beautiful. I love that all the walls are white, makes for great lighting. Reasonably priced, yet somehow I felt like I was splurging.
The desert bar is to die for; not only pleasing to look at, but delicious as well. I like the eclairs! The macarons there are overly hyped. Lette macarons or La Duree are the only way to go when it comes to macarons :)
The only negative for me was that there was no parking, its not easily accessible.
SUGARFISH BY SUSHI NOZAWA - This place has become my absolute FAVORITE sushi restaurant. I can't believe I'm barely discovering it. It was JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI, that sparked my interest in the art of sushi and prompted me to look for a restaurant that is considered to uphold such a standard. TRUST ME menu all the way! The Studio City location is the best of all its locations, but be prepared to wait for a table.
THE BOILING CRAB- I gotta say, it was a fun experience! I got to wear a bib and eat with my hands. I'm a seafood lover too, so this place truly was a delight. I was kind of grossed out by the shrimp still having their heads but all in all, it was awesome!
FIG AND OLIVE - Honestly this place has such amazing food. I love almost everything on the menu that I've tried. My absolute favorites are the Sea bass and the Fig and Olive salad. Although this restaurant is a little more pricey than the others, it's totally worth it.
Happy Eating! XO
