Tired of the ultra-conservative options for women in the workplace and fed up with the trend of poorly-made disposable fashion, Aella founder and creative director Eunice Cho embarked on a year-long journey to create the ultimate pair of black pants that are as appropriate for running a meeting as they are running to catch a cab to an art opening.
Constructed with precision and care, using heritage machines and single-needle stitching, Aella leaves no detail behind. “I care as much about the inside of the garment as I do the outside,” Cho says. Aella has labored over how to create the perfect pants, so you can put them on and live your life.
With A-Frame, Chef Roy Choi invites you to his house party and suggests that you share your food, eat with your hands, laugh with your mouths full and get dirty. Don't mind the Missy Elliot radio on blast, the "modern picnic" style communal tables or the dancing servers - that's all part of the charm man.

Gorgeous light drenched space, food by Chef Greg Daniels, former sous chef at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Perry St (NYC), a plum location on what GQ has dubbed "the coolest block in America." Tell me what's not to love about this beach bistro?
With a menu brimming with the flavors of the Northeast Atlantic, Littleforkoffers a delicious array of house-smoked meats, fresh oysters, and the sexiest poutine you've ever seen (outside of Canada that is). And just when you thought life couldn't get any better, you spy Pappy Van Winkle on the whiskey menu and $1.50 Molson's on their happy hour list.

Chef Roy Choi's Caribbean themed "cookshop" is just as its name suggests; a sunny spot conveniently located just a couple of miles from the ocean. Come on in, sit back, soak in the sun and get ready for some killer flavors. Don't bother dusting the sand off your feet. They like you just the way you are.
In case anyone asks . . . you were here at one of Culver City's hottest joints where you were drinking craft beers, damn fine cocktails, and grubbing on Chef Roy Choi's Kogi BBQ tacos and Chego bowls. They gotchu.
Bolete Restaurant & Inn
Bolete Restaurant & Inn is the literal labor of love from husband and wife team Erin and Lee Chizmar. When they moved from Boston and bought the 200+ year old, allegedly haunted, stage coach tavern in Bethlehem, PA, they never imagined they'd be reenacting scenes from The Money Pit. But with the supremely talented Chef Lee leading the kitchen and Erin, the hospitality ace, running the dining room, this farm-to-table gem caught the attention of Conde Nast Traveler, Gourmet, the Food Network and earned a three bell review from The Philadelphia Inquirer. Not bad for a restaurant flanked by the major food cities of NYC, Philadelphia and D.C.
Before Abbot Kinney became the "coolest block in America" there was The Brig. Unapologetic, irreverent, fun and effortlessly cool; The Brig is a place for locals, wanderers and lovers alike. There aren't many places left in Venice where you can get an ice cold Miller High-Life alongside an expertly made Negroni or Old Fashioned (sans the vest and mustache). Oh and the Kogi BBQ taco truck parked outside? Well that's just a bonus.
