At the suggestion of Bonnie Tsang, foodie goddess of the West, I paid a visit to Bottega Louie while I was visiting Los Angeles last month. It was sensational. A feast for the eyes and the belly. Each and every detail of the space, the food, the pastries, everything was just right. And when the display cases filled with little pastry gems made it too overwhelming to choose, I could rest my eyes on the serene space that was just so perfectly appointed.
I ate a lovely breakfast and picked up a bundle of the pretty boxes of candies as Christmas gifts. Their packaging is as yummy as the treats inside. Even the flowers in the powder room were perfection. It is safe to say that if I lived in the greater Los Angeles area, Bottega Louie would be the place I headed when I needed a good dose of design and a cream puff. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in LA anytime soon, I would put this at the top of your list.
