The usual setup, geared to the forgetful guest, is a closet with a few sundries such as toothpaste and razors—along with a generic item or two that could travel home as a souvenir.

Best Public Fountains HIT : 722

Photograph by Karl Drilling Long before elaborate fountains became developers’ favorite diversions, they served as upwellings of L.A. pride. Their look reflected a time and sensibility, whether it was space-age optimism or old-world nostalgia, and their location in parks or on civic plazas mandated sharing. That they used such a scarce resource—water—only enhanced their preciousness. […]

Hog Wild HIT : 967

Photograph by Lisa Romerein Cochon Bourré We imagine the back rooms at many L.A. bars must look like Frankenstein’s lab these days, with morsels of flesh bobbing in jars of various liquids. Church & State infuses bourbon with bacon lard, cold filters it three times, and strains it through cheesecloth. The result is worked into […]

Best Children’s Menus HIT : 616

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 […]

Photograph courtesy Larry Lytle; Sign From Virginia Court Hotel, Meridian, Mississippi, 1948, On Loan To Mona From The Pritzker Collection We’re all for massive cultural repositories, but, let’s face it, the scale can be daunting.

Best Boutique Gyms HIT : 742

The Landmark  Robert Mitchum and Kirk Douglas used to tone their pecs at EASTON GYM HOLLYWOOD (8053 Beverly Blvd., L.A., 323-651-3636 or easton gymhollywood.com) , which in its eighth decade continues to attract actors with its well-stocked weight area and unpretentious aesthetic ( brick walls and casement windows that open). The rooftop deck is ideal […]

Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants HIT : 699

We go to Dish in La Cañada for homey all-American food and Border Grill in Santa Monica for nouveau Mexican. But for the quintessential L.A. kids’ menu, it’s hard to beat the multicultural mix at Curry House in Little Tokyo. Happy, patient servers offer children a choice of Japanese curry, chicken teriyaki, or spaghetti, along with french […]
