We had a really nice getaway. We went to L.A. for a couple of nights. Stayed here. Took walks on the beach, slept a lot, went to a movie at Grauman's Chinese Theater, and ate at some stellar restaurants, including Lucques (Susan Goin is my hero) and Pizzeria Mozza (twice in two days, in case you wondered how much we liked it). But perhaps the true culinary highlights were the coffee experiences we had (coffee can be considered a "culinary highlight," right?). First at LAMILL in Silver Lake (where that photo was taken), and then at Intelligentsia in Venice Beach. B thought LAMILL was superior, and I thought Intelligentsia was. Either way, they were the two best coffee experiences we've ever had in the U.S.
I took all of two photos (both of the café con leche I had at LAMILL) so there isn't much else to show you.
