THIS MONTH’S FAVES
Monthly Archives: November 2012
I love the train station in Glendale, hidden down the street away from everything. The historic building is magical at sunset, and happens to be only 10 minutes from my place. It’s definetly a great place for photos and beautiful at dusk. By now you’ve seen my faux fur vest, that goes with just about anything. What’s on your wish list?

There’s been a lot of buzz around Art District’s latest gem, Bestia LA, and it’s officially open last Friday after much anticipation. I had the pleasure of visiting the restaurant with a couple of my fellow blogger babes, Jenny Wu from Good, Bad & Fab , and Taye Hansberry, from She Likes Stuff. If you’re anything like me and miss the New York City vibe here in Los Angeles, a visit to Bestia DTLA will make you feel right back at home. Nestled away in the Arts District, this area is becoming one of my favorite places in Los Angeles.
Expect open an industrial feel, exposed brick, large windows that open in the patio covered in vine and an open kitchen where you can watch the married duo, chef Ori Menashe (Angelini Osteria) and pastry chef Genevieve Gergis, whip up some magic. The reviews have been nothing but fantastic and after visiting, I now see why.
Here are just a few of the amazing items on the menu..
Olives – $5 for a bowl of delicious olives.
Roasted Vegetables – beautiful presentation
Pizza Bianca – some of the best pizza around. A little taste of Napoli
Chestnut Papardelle – poached egg deliciousness on Mushroom Ragu
Squid Ink Pasta – made from the highest quality dry pasta there is. This is one of favorites and i don’t even love pasta, cooked al denti to perfection with a touch of spice.
Roasted marrow bone – I don’t eat red meat but everyone else ADORED this dish.
Dessert – anything from pastry chef Genevieve Gergis is amazing. She whipped up some coffee ice cream for us from mostly milk, not cream, and we all could not believe how amazing it was. To give you an idea, Nancy Silverstein tried one of her cookies and was so impressed, it is now on the menu at Bread.
