Animal

Animal

Animal is one of my favorite LA spots now. And it’s not just because we had our first celebrity sighting there (Abed!). Animal is topping my list because they made brussels sprouts so good that while I was digging into the next dish of poutine (gravy and cheese covered fries) all I could think about…

LA Cookie Challenge: M Street Kitchen vs. Milo & Olive

LA Cookie Challenge: M Street Kitchen vs. Milo & Olive

In the second installment of our cookie challenge, we hit up a couple of our favorite Santa Monica locales. Without further adieu… M Street Kitchen is another great bakery and restaurant near the beach. The absolutely enormous (I swear it weighed a pound), fairly traditional chocolate cookie (soft in the center with crispy edges) gets…

LA Cookie Challenge: Huckleberry vs. Gjelina

LA Cookie Challenge: Huckleberry vs. Gjelina

We are absolutely about our crazy new pup. Bella, or Little Bear, as we affectionately refer to her, is also pretty crazy about us, so much so that she has a crazy barking fit whenever we leave the house. We’ve given her plenty of practice spending time alone in her “den” while we are home,…

Farmshop LA

Farmshop LA

We planned on doing dinner in the OC last night with some friends, but at the last minute, plans changed. We hadn’t gone grocery shopping for the week (and we really haven’t eaten out other than In-N-Out since we adopted our little Bella), so we really needed to get out to dinner. We turned to…

Tar and Roses

Tar and Roses

Greetings from somewhere over the United States! As I am writing this, we are on our way home from a trip  to Indiana to visit my parents for an early Christmas. Our trip included an in-person viewing of a disappointing Texans loss, a visit with a good friend from high school, and ended in Evansville…

ink.

One of Dustin’s friends and co-workers from Microsoft is originally from the LA area and was in town over the weekend for the Thanksgiving holiday. We spent Sunday evening with him and a few of his friends at ink. in West Hollywood (another from the top 101 of LA list). ink. is a gastropub with…

The Spice Table

The Spice Table

Dustin has been making fun of me recently because of my obsession with this list I stumbled upon online. It’s a list from Jonathan Gold of the LA Times counting down the 101 best restaurants in LA. I’ve been using it as a reference guide for places to eat around here, and I thought it would be…

Milo and Olive

Milo and Olive

After a long day of work and school, neither Dustin nor I felt like cooking (plus I think we had exhausted our at-home food supply for the week) or even sitting in a restaurant. I didn’t feel like brushing my hair or putting on makeup. All I wanted to do was flop on the bed…

The Hart and the Hunter

The Hart and the Hunter

On our way from Seattle to LA, we stopped at Pine State Biscuit in Portland and proclaimed ourselves to have eaten the best biscuits we have ever tasted. Well the biscuits at The Hart and the Hunter, a Southern-inspired restaurant at the Palihotel on Melrose, definitely give Pine State a run for their money. Who…

Connie and Ted’s

Connie and Ted’s

Connie and Ted’s is a newly opened New England-style seafood (upscale) shack in the heart of West Hollywood. In the few months that is has been opened, you have to book dinner reservations weeks in advance if you want to eat your dinner at a reasonable time— say between 5 and 10pm. They are open…
