Bodega Wine Bar

Lookin for a place to grab a drink that has decent bar food? Check this place out. Bodega is a wine bar, perfect for an after work happy hour or a late night drinks date. Not for the wine aficionado, it's just a casual place made for a relaxing, fun time. The wine list is split up by price and type to make selection easy. When we were there we had this pepperoni & mushroom pizza they were playing House Party on the tv.

India Sweets and Spices

So I wouldn't so much call this place a restaurant as it's more of a cafeteria/grocery store. Definitely a more non-traditional place for Andy and I to get Sunday brunch, but why not!?
I honestly couldn't tell you what we ate but, whatever it was, it was delicious. Maybe one of you Indian readers our there could help me identify what I ate!!
My favorite thing about this place was the fact that I could see all the food just like in a cafeteria so I felt comfortable experimenting. I love Indian food but usually I stick to what i know: chicken tikka masala, pulao rice, garlic naan... This place got me to try new and exciting flavors!

The Mercantile

This salad was billiant. Burrata, homemade croutons, grilled peaches...done. Awesome.
The Mercantile is a sweet spot in LA that serves lunch, dinner and a killer weekend brunch. I think this salad was a special menu item that may no longer be available but none the less you should still check this spot out. I've had their brunch croquet madam and it's just rediculous. Would be a great date spot too!
