In Los Angeles, we love good food...and nothing tops a good wine and cheese with a little fruit on the side. These are the best spots to visit if you need the perfect spread.
Love the Eggplant Parmesan and imported foods. Always busy at lunch and on weekends. Angelinos become pushy New Yorkers here.
Hopefully Bottega Louie is a good sign for the future of DTLA. It's always busy and the food is great. Pastries are reminiscent of Laduree in Paris, which is no small compliment.
You can smell this store from outside...and that is a good thing! This is likely the best cheese store in LA. They have a huge variety to choose from, as well as anything you will want to add (crackers, breads, jams) on the side. It can be a pricey treat but worth it!
Venokado is one of those places that you will pass by if you don't look fast enough. It is a great spot to stop by on the way to a dinner party. You can pick up wine, cheeses or gifts for your host.
