Elegance Meets Gourmet Fare at These Fine Dining Restaurants in Los Angeles

October 16, 2014 10:03 am

Los Angeles is one of the country’s most stimulating cities, from its movie sets to its picturesque beaches. The city's vibrant restaurant scene is also exciting to the senses, and these two fine dining restaurants are some of the best in LA.

Mastro’s Steakhouse
With its sleek, modern decor and a old Hollywood charm, Mastro’s Steakhouse just looks like the type of restaurant where famous actors would hide from the snooping paparazzi. Comfortable leather booths line the walls, and the rustic, wooden bar glistens with a wide variety of spirit bottles on every shelf. The menu includes steakhouse classics like beef carpaccio and shrimp cocktail to start, and the impressive wine and beer list features a handpicked selection of favorites. Entrees include high quality steaks and chops with potato and fresh vegetable sides, and traditional desserts such as cheesecake and key lime pie are the ideal ending to any meal.

The Bazaar by Jose Andres
Traditional Spanish cuisine gets a modern, creative makeover at this stylish indoor piazza. The Bazaar features a wide assortment of dining spaces and lounge areas each based on a different theme, including a stark white room with elegant chandeliers and a rustic, red room with Southwestern influence. The menu is full of seafood prepared with a Mediterranean flair, Catalan salads, flavorful desserts, and crafted cocktails with equally as much pizazz.

Page Museum: Discover the Natural Wonders of the Ice Age

October 8, 2014 9:02 am

The Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits is one of Los Angeles's most well-known attractions. Visitors here can explore a variety of extinct Ice Age plants and animals and will be able to imagine what the world was like when saber-tooted cats and mammoths roamed the Los Angeles basin.

Start your visit in the Fossil Lab, where museum staff are cleaning and cataloging the newest bones and fossils discovered by the site's excavators. Then head outside to watch the excavators themselves at work, searching for more Ice Age treasures. Meet a life-sized mammoth replica at the Lake Pit, and take a tour through the Pleistocene garden, filled with the vegetation that was once abundant in the area. The museum and tar pits are large, and taking it all in can easily be a day-long experience.
