Sometimes I take pictures and don't end up posting them. I'm effectively captive at home today because of the Grammy traffic around us, so I'm digging up these photos from a few of my November and December walks around L.A. Live.
They're sort of relevant, as they depict the area surrounding Staples Center, where the Grammy Awards Show is taking place, not to mention the Grammy Museum is right here, too.
One of my favorite reliable local chains is The Farm of Beverly Hills, so I was jazzed that one opened here at L.A. Live. The trick to eating at The Farm is knowing what to order. Get something simple, and you should be happy enough with your meal. Get something else, and I guarantee nothing. You can't go wrong with breakfast.
Farm omelet with applewood bacon, barbecued beef brisket, spinach, and Gruyère ($11.50).
Blueberry and strawberry crêpes stuffed with Mascarpone cheese ($9.75).
And now a pictorial tour of L.A. Live.
I love living downtown. Won't you be my neighbor?
An omelet with brisket? Huh. That's a new one. Tim would love it.ReplyDelete
Downtown living is awesome! And the brioche french toast looks absolutely amazing.ReplyDelete
so jealousE you live close to so many great places!ReplyDelete
Can you believe I still haven't been to LA Live? Must get on that.ReplyDelete
i'm happy to see LA Live finally coming "alive". ;)ReplyDelete
You're so fortunate to live where you do. I love this medley of photos.ReplyDelete
Oooh how fun! I look forward to visiting LA Live when I come home.ReplyDelete
brisket makes everything better. spoken like a true ok/tx girl.ReplyDelete
i heart downtown.ReplyDelete
you are going to laugh but i actually made my friends take a photo of me in front of the asian woman in that big 'ol monstrosity of a target ad. if i hadn't posed with it, we'd have identical shots in our blog.ReplyDelete
Is the walk from the Biltmore to L.A. Live long enough to justify scarfing down that french toast?ReplyDelete
ooh, the farm! i love.ReplyDelete
looks like we'll have to plan an LA live GTG soon!
Hubbs must never, never see this post. I don't want to start the 'moving to downtown' talk again.ReplyDelete
Those photos are insanely colorful. I'm so jealous of that.ReplyDelete
Wow! A lot has changed since I lived downtown. All I had to great me when I stepped out my door was the smell of urine and masses of homeless people. I had no idea all that even exists!ReplyDelete
Why wasn't downtown this cool seven years ago? Whyyyyyyy??!!ReplyDelete
And ditto re: the Farm. Great burgers...and the more complicated stuff can be very meh.
