Every family has their fun little habits and favorite restaurants. On Sundays, we like to take the kids out to an early 5/6 pm dinner straight from whatever our activity is, come home, throw them in a bath and then get them to bed early to prepare for the school week. That's the plan, anyway. Sometimes we get really into particular restaurants. This year, we spent almost every Sunday dinner at one of Frank Prisanzano's restaurants on the Lower East Side, with the original, Frank's, being our favorite. I was pregnant, so gorging on pasta with the kids was particularly delightful, although … [Read more...]

Inside LA Hot Spot Gracias Madre

gracias Madre

The OKL blog has been really good lately. This week they featured the interiors of the LA hotspot Gracias Madre. When I was in LA for Legends of La Cienega, I popped over there in between parties for some drinks- it's right there in the Design District. And yes, it was incredibly cool. It's the perfect LA indoor outdoor space. I think I have some artsy looking photos of their bathroom floors somewhere on my iPhone. So when beautiful photos popped up on the OKL blog along with a corresponding sale, I was like, Yes, will steal for blog. Enjoy! The restaurant is Vegan Mexican (LOVE!) … [Read more...]

#Sketch42xSmith

FOLLOW FRIDAY | Art Toast

arttoast_small3

Dudes and dudettes, Friday is upon us. Food inspo for the weekend: Art Toast, the work of Instagram food artist @IdaFrosk. We live in interesting times, I'll tell ya! Ida is a Norwegian, living in Berlin, and spends some time in the AM concocting food art for her grams. She eats them all afterward, of course. The Art Toast is a project in which she copies famous works of art on her toast. Imagine someone serving you breakfast in bed with a Picasso or Van Gogh on it? I'd love it. She also has a book.   Happy Friday!!!! Follow @idafrosk Website IdaFrosk.com … [Read more...]
