The Sofitel Los Angeles (right across from The Beverly Center) recently remodeled their Esterel Restaurant, and the scenery is inspiring.



Christy and I were invited to experience brunch in Le Jardin


…by the way, the restaurant’s interior is not too shabby either.



There’s an a la carte menu…


…but we headed inside for the buffet.

I love me a hotel buffet.



In addition to all the continental breakfast you could possibly want, they also have made-to-order omelets.

We wound up going back/forth a lot…

…and had one carby/sweet plate to share.


By the time we were done, it felt like we had been on vacation.

Lunch on Set

…if you follow me on social media you already know that was me playing the “Nurse” in the pilot – and here’s what I ate for lunch on Day 3 of shooting!  If you didn’t catch Fear the Walking Dead “live,” it’s rerunning all week and is also online now.

The other project I’ve been keeping secret will be announced this fall.  In the meantime, I’ve been working on my food hosting skills and started taking classes at YouTubeSpaceLA.

Here’s a fun little video from Taiwan that I recently uploaded on my channel

…there will be more videos from the trip that I’ll be sharing very soon – via a webseries with ISATV that premieres this Thursday.  Stay tuned for that.

Some other exciting news – Leslie made some foodie feminist shirts, Zach takes you on a Dumpling Food Crawl, Michael’s wonderful movie The Motel is having its 10th Anniversary Screening, and my own decade-old film was listed as #2 in Autostraddle’s 100 Best Lesbian Movies of All Time!

There are also two HUGE Food Festivals coming soon – LA Food & Wine, followed by The L.A. Times’ The Taste.  Click through to read my coverage from past years – hope to see some of you there.
