From the driving, to the parking, to the not knowing where to drive or park, dinner in L.A. is harder than it should be. That’s why we created Dinner Plan — your three-step itinerary to a damn good time.
Hyden Yoo designs fitted shirts that are polished enough for the office, but look great with jeans and are short enough to leave untucked. Try a few on at his new shop on Abbott Kinney, along with his well-textured cardigans. We like the checked ones seen above.
This marble-and-copper brasserie from Stephane Bombet and Chef Kris Morningstar is a homerun. Book a seat on their tree-shaded patio and enjoy California-French comfort food. As in, octopus braised in olive oil and plated over creamy burrata and charred broccolini. Or hanger steak sous vide with a silver-dollar dollop of herb marrow butter resting on top and golden, finger-width frites on the side.
