Best Sandwiches HIT : 557

Photograph courtesy flickr/FotoosVanRobin The fabled lobster rolls of Maine are traditionally wrapped in waxed paper or set on Styrofoam plates. But at the lobby lounge in the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey , four dainty triangles of grilled pain de mie are piled with fresh crustacean meat that’s been enhanced with a veneer of melted Brie. Basil, tomato, and an […]

Best Piano Bars HIT : 568

Follow the strains of “Holly Holy” or “Luck Be a Lady” to find Wagner’s spot near the curved bar, where he performs Wednesday through Saturday […]

Best Afternoon Tea HIT : 542

Photograph courtesy Flickr/*saxon* On the surface, Los Angeles wouldn’t seem the most hospitable location for upholding English customs—our weather is too pleasant, our teeth are too impeccable. But import we do—from Charlie Chaplin to Bentleys, polo grounds to soccer pubs. Even the Playboy Mansion is mock Tudor. It may have been Queen Victoria’s lady-in-waiting who […]

Best Sunglasses Shops HIT : 471

By the time tourists were snapping up pairs of military-style Foster Grants on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in the late ’20s, sunglasses were on their way to becoming a necessity (at least, as we go broke financing a new pair, we’re convinced there’s no living without them).

Best Happy Hours HIT : 574

Decked out with piñatas and Corona blowup toys, Fiesta Cantina is where cute, casual guys go to feel like they’re in Cancún (if Cancún weren’t so trashy). Shirtless bartenders with perfectly chiseled everything pour two drinks for the price of one every day from 4 to 8 p.m. and from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. […]

Best Children’s Menus HIT : 458

Photograph by Lisa Romerein Even at L.A.’s more ambitious restaurants, the children’s offerings are often the culinary equivalent of a well-worn SpongeBob DVD—already enjoyed way too many times but popped in yet again to keep Courtney or Eli occupied while their parents sup on something more sophisticated. Searching for the city’s best kids’ menus (for […]

Best Merry-Go-Rounds HIT : 570

Image from Shutterstock Soon after the first patent for an electric carousel was issued in 1871, every pleasure pier, amusement park, and traveling carnival had a collection of intricately carved horses rising and falling on brass poles. Today a few originals live on in the L.A. area, and new creations push the theme into the […]

Best Party Supply Stores HIT : 556

Photograph courtesy Flickr/randysonofrobert There’s the kind of party thrower who will scratch his head, scatter plastic plates and forks, put out a bowl ofchile con queso, and consider himself finis in the dine and decor departments. Then there are the hosts who seriously amp up their get-togethers by deploying streamers, balloons, disposable but exquisitely designed […]
