I love Los Angeles. I was born there. I only lived there until I was 7 but have continued to be pulled back. I spent a semester there as an intern working for JW Robinson, my sister lived there for many years, my brother and his family moved back there over 8 years ago and my Grandmother lived in Laguna. Each time I land in LAX and walk through the terminal I honestly feel at home. The people look familiar to me. I know where I am when I drive around although don't ask me to tell you how to get there.
Fred and I will definitely be spending more time there once we become empty nesters. Our kids love it out there too. I am in the process of setting up shop up there for the future, not full time but definitely long periods of time.
I was out there this week working on that project. The process of building something can be long ardous and painful for many but I honestly love it. I have the ability of making quick decisions and being very focused on how each of them affect the entire outcome of the project. Then I can go home and walk through it in my brain.
We did have some delicious meals while we were there too. I also got a good hug from both of my nieces which is always a side bonus. We ate one night at Tar and Roses. Not such a great name but a nice vibe with good food. Above is the chicken I had. I liked that it was a small bird for one.
Then we went to Superba the last night. The food there is just outstanding. We had a long day, I believe about 8 hours of decisions, and needed a strong drink. They only serve beer and wine so we walked across the street for the hard stuff and returned for dinner and wine. Unfortunately I did not take pictures and the menu is constantly changing. If you are in LA, stop by for a snack, a pasta, a small plate, anything. A very special place.
