Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Marvin on Beverly is my consistent go to—the wine and food are great, you can sit outside (rare for LA), and, if you ask, the lovely staff will bring you a backgammon board. The best Ethiopian food is Awash on Pico (just south of LACMA). Sunset Tower‘s chopped Cobb salad is a staple, and the Kibitz Room at Canter’s is my favorite dive bar for a nightcap and live music.
WHERE TO SEE ART
There will be so much to see in February around the time of Frieze, but I’m particularly excited for The Box’s exhibition, Pierre Guyotat and Christoph von Weyhe organized by Donatien Grau. I also recommend Zoe Leonard‘s “Survey” at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, and “Outliers and American Vanguard Art” organized by Lynne Cooke at LACMA. The Underground Museum is always worth visiting.
WHERE TO RELAX
Topanga Canyon is a beautiful (and magical) place to spend the afternoon with friends. In town, I highly recommend the Raven Spa in Silverlake for a deep tissue massage and Kate Somerville on Melrose Place (go to Michelle) for the best facial.
