Los Angeles Love Letter

Along with our newly launched dRA spring collection -Los Angeles love letter- we wanted to highlight some of our fave LA spots!  

Described in the “City of Gold” as a constantly shifting mosaic of cuisines, Los Angeles really has it all.  Where else in the world can you go from eating unpretentious street tacos to a French rooftop bistro, to vegan soul food?  Our palates are as eclectic as the Angelenos you’ll meet.  While we love eating everything Los Angeles has to over, here are our go-to dRA spots.

Best Mexican:  There are tons of amazing food trucks all over town but our new go-to is Loqui. The Baja-inspired taqueria offers a modern interpretation of street food classics. 

Best Japanese: If you need to satisfy your sushi desire, head to SUGARFISH by Sushi Nozawa.  It’s quick and easy, and the handrolls are on point.  For something a little more formal, try Q’s in downtown.  The omakase-only experience means your meal will be curated by the chef, so best to leave picky eaters at home.  

Best Korean: Got time to burn? Try Kang Ho Baekjeong in Koreatown.  Be prepared for a line out the door; the regular wait time is almost 2 hours on any given weekend.  If you’re on more of a time crunch check out quarters right across the street.  It’s created by the same owners and makes for an equally amazing Korean BBQ experience.


BeautyFor an entirely luxury experience check out Violet Grey on Melrose, curated with only the best in everything beauty related.  Looking for KBeauty?  No need to order online, go to faceshop for beauty products that are as much about the fun packaging as the high quality.

ShoppingLake boutique: whether you're looking for designer Isabel Marant or artisanal baskets and jewelry, check out Lake boutique in Silverlake for your one stop shop.

ArtThe Broad Museum: are you sick of seeing this beautiful, IG friendly spot all over your social?  We're not either.  Another classic spot we can't get tired of is the Griffith Observatory.  Walk the steps of LALA land inside the planetarium, and enjoy the stunning views. 

LifestyleLA spoils us with beach weather almost year round.  If you’re not feeling the waves, a hike on our favorite trail, Runyon Canyon, is a great alternative.  It is a 2.5-mile trail that offers scenic views and is rated as moderate - perfect for casual hikers.
