By now, chances are you’ve probably heard of Atrium. The stunning Los Feliz restaurant opened in the Fall of last year and has quickly become one of the hottest tickets in town. From the restaurateurs of Silverlake’s Sawyer and Kettle Black, Atrium boasts food from chef Hunter Pritchett, who focuses on SoCal flavors for unique takes on local favorites; a Grilled Cauliflower Shawarma evokes LA’s love of Israeli and Middle Eastern flavors, but with a veggie-friendly preparation, while a classic Beef Carpaccio is transformed into a carne asada with avocado crema, crispy potatoes, and salsa macha. Diners enter through a subtle-yet-sexy alleyway into a space with exposed brick, plush booths, and some lovely greenery. With its grand, warehouse-meets-mid-century-modern design and namesake atrium, it’s a bright, fun spot to ride out those winter blues.Read More
Something old, something new. Something barbecued, something to chew.

We all know how hard it is to keep New Year's Resolutions. But ever since joining Classpass around two years ago (how time flies!), I've found that getting myself to fitness classes is easier than ever. In fact, I've found so many classes I actually like, and even *gasp* look forward to going to! The classes below are undoubtedly the ones I take most frequently.Read More
What was once solely the center of cheesy tourist traps and a few iconic landmarks, Hollywood has been undergoing a major make-over in the last few years. With an influx of cool coffee shops, restaurants, rooftop bars, and modern office spaces, the area has morphed into a central hub of the city's new culture. And now that Hamilton is playing at the Pantages for the next few months (we're seeing it Sunday! Eek!), the neighborhood will be busier than ever. Another new feature of Hollywood? The new, cool hotel openings! Considering the amount of tourists traipsing around Hollywood Blvd., I was always surprised by the lack of hotels. Sure, there are the few old Hollywood icons like The Roosevelt, or the more touristy mainstays like The W Hotel, but in terms of modern, boutique choices, those are just beginning to pop up. Hotels like The Dream, and now The Kimpton Everly, are proving that upscale, hip, and modern are not out of place amongst the neighborhood.
The new Kimpton Everly in particular is a breath of fresh air, with bright open spaces, designer touches, a laid-back feel, and some rustic details. It stands apart from its neon, Vegas-inspired neighbors, with a cool coffee bar perfect for getting some work done, and a rooftop pool with such incredible views, it's bound to become a hotspot. But one of the best features is the hotel's all-day eatery, Jane Q. The casual spot offers all-day counter service with farmer's market ingredients, LaMill coffee, and light cocktails. But despite the low-key feel, we were pleasantly surprised by upscale, fresh, and creative twists on everyday bites.Read More
