go here: Commissary

If you haven’t been to Commissary yet, you should go soon. It’s the new restaurant from Roy Choi, located on the second floor at The Line Hotel and it is beautiful! Roy wrote on his Instagram that he was “building a country club for the public” and he delivered. You’re inside a spacious greenhouse, surrounded by plants and the glistening sun. It’s like a magical scene from a movie, like you are in a secret garden. The cocktails are served in big plastic cups, the service is great, and the food is beautifully styled on pretty plates that I want to steal. The food is flavorful and rich, complimented with savory sauces. I have gone twice now and I loved the ambience and food. The restaurant is next to the pool so next time, I plan on laying out for a bit and then enjoying another delicious meal. Well done, Roy Choi! 🙂 grilled corn with parmesan, kochukaru, yellow sauce, red sauce deviled eggs with chives, cayenne, sweet relish, red onion seared scallops with lemon …

go here: Republique

If you haven’t been to Republique yet, you must go soon. It is one of my favorite new places for brunch/lunch. Everything I have eaten so far has been delicious. The restaurant is beautiful- it looks like you are inside a castle and I love the sunlight shining through the ceiling & windows. They have fresh fruit juices and freshly baked pastries. I want to eat them all. You’ll also be surprised to know that one of my favorite dishes there is the kimchi fried rice! It comes with short ribs and a perfectly poached egg on top. I’m lucky it is near my work so I can go there frequently. 🙂 pictured: biscuits & gravy, wild mushroom toast, kimchi fried rice pictured: smoked salmon tartine
