Do you have a happy place? Y’know like whenever you feel sad, and you enter your favourite space and instantly you feel a little better? Well, it was the afternoon after Jack Layton’s state funeral. Puffy eyed and and in need of a pick-me-up, I headed for brunch at my happy place in LA, Bottega Louie.
Even though it’s in downtown Los Angeles and not Manhattan, it’s exactly the kind of place I had imagined Carrie Bradshaw and the girls would brunch at when I was an early teen.
Everything is so whimsically beautiful! Le sigh*
Ms. Etienne made it to America!
Orange eyeliner, as much orange in my outfit as possible in memory of JACK!!
Pink salt! How darling.
Smoked salmon eggs benedict, of course.
Tony is smiling even bigger than when we had brunch at Home. See what I mean about my happy place?
Will post our desserts tomorrow. Come back, or subscribe to my feed!
