Bottega Louie and Gabby
One of the benefits of not blogging daily was the bounty of time I found. I went out to LA a couple times, and one of the times was meeting Gabby from Corazones Rojos and lunched at Bottega Louie, a restaurant in Downtown LA.
Very few places can make a BLT and fries look glamorous and BL was capital in their presentation. The quality of the food was just as good as it looks. The best part about the place? THE BAKERY! I've never discriminated against a cupcake, but after having BL's cupcakes, I can taste what the big hurrah is about cupcakes.
BL not only had cupcakes but they macarons (not to be confused with the macaroon), and after seeing them all over the blogesphere, I had to join the macaron club and have my own set of pretty photos. Apologies for the cliché but I couldn't help myself.
