B O T T E G A / L O U I E

well, i am still full from dinner last night, but oh my was it good. i just love love love the vibe in this downtown hangout...super high ceilings, a loud, yet happy racket, everybody has a yummy looking drink, a smile and maybe even a colorful macaroon...it's quite grand in it's architecture, while still maintaining a super laid back vibe. (which is my kinda place). How can one object to all that space in there! Me and my bf split a arugula, ricotta and mozzarella pizza, portobello french fries & brussels sprouts. All three were cooked perfectly and tasted great, all that cheese was just heavenly. Oh and me and Kel cheers to some champagne, because we were feelin fancy. I loved their huge selection of wine, baked goods, pasta, olive oils...all things that make great gifts. Three words. I'm Goin Back.

we'll see-- he's such a foodie, I'm sure he already has where we're going to eat all planned out! but I'll be back again in September if I don't get to it this trip. Any other suggestions in terms of (affordable) antique/vintage stores? maybe around echo park? my boyfriend just moved to the area literally a month ago, and although he is very hip, I doubt he knows where all of the cool shops are yet!
