I have always enjoyed dining out whether alone or with friends. I mean, who doesn’t?
Though a plate of eggs benedict at the Museum Café or Apartment 1b paired with a glass of cold mimosa or that bowl of pomelo salad from People’s Palace is always a treat – I also enjoy going to restaurants in the city that are pretty much low-key.
Sometimes we run into a little eatery that you would never initially enter, but surprises you with an experience that is anything but.
(Hipster central - Melrose Avenue)
Right across the pond, located where Hamasaku used to be along the twelve-block shopping strip on Melrose Avenue or what Angelenos call “the hipster central” – with designer shops like Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs sprouting like mushrooms alongside trendy Fred Segal, Kitson and vintage shops like Decades is Ink., chef Michael Voltaggio’s first signature restaurant.
Eating at Ink. creates an incredible impression with flavors inspired by the myriad of cultures that make up the city of Los Angeles.

And yes, there is always a good reason for all the hype. I hear most people take away happily.
