A brisk night calls for a sweater. Our recommendation: hit the newly opened COS (H&M’s up-market line) in Beverly Hills. Pick the softer, tighter-knit boiled sweaters (men’s department, rack at the top of the stairs) or the ribbed jumper (in the back towards the fitting rooms).

Pete’s Cafe was just transformed to Pete’s by the Bäco Mercat guy. Same corner spot, only now it’s a white French bistro with classics like steak frites, duck confit and one mean pan-fried veal.
