Genwa Korean BBQ
5115 Wilshire Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Memorial Day weekend. A day to celebrate and remember. The unofficial start of summer. And a time to have a poolside BBQ where you can see the varying degrees to which your friends react to the late-May LA sun. I’m personally sporting a gnarly racerback tank tan on my back. I will be spending my summer Fridays trying to even it out.
The International Food Club (IFC…still looks like “Independent Film Channel” to me…) was back at it again this month, this time visiting Italy via Angelini Osteria. I won’t ever turn down a trip to my favorite (so far!) Italian restaurant in the city.
EXCUSE ME WHILE I FOODIE GEEK OUT FOR A MOMENT. Top Chef fans out there will understand my utter elation when I spotted Carla Hall (Season 5 and most recently, All-Stars) dining in the same restaurant. Whilst residing in LA, I’ve become accustomed to spotting a few famous faces, but have never really felt the inclination to be a rabid fangirl. (Although let’s be real. If Justin Timberlake or Leonardo DiCaprio were to be within eyesight, I might actually pass out. I clearly have not outgrown my childhood obsessions cough NSYNC and Titanic cough). But I digress.
