Travel (and food) in Los Angeles

If you are looking for a great trip this summer, consider a visit to Los Angeles. While many think of Southern California as a town of beaches, fitness, glitz, and glamour. But, a key piece of the culture of Los Angeles is food. Many consider it one of the best food cities in the country. From high class restaurants to a neighborhood food truck, your options are nearly endless.

Eater.com recently listed the 12 Best New Restaurants, and (surprise!) a Los Angeles based restaurant made the list (https://www.eater.com/2017/7/26/16034248/best-new-restaurants-2017). Located in Venice, Felix Trattoria is Chef Evan Funke’s new restaurant. The name means “happy” or “funky” Trattoria and the restaurant aligns with the surge, nation-wide, of Italian restaurants. Felix Trattoria seves the carby, saucy, cheesy, herby, garlicky yumminess that your soul craves.

Felix Trattoria is in the super boho-hip Abbot Kinney Boulevard. It is in beautifully renovated 1920s building with many traditional and new touches Amazing food choices include spectacular focaccia, and pasta (so many great pastas!). The menu is full of mouthwatering twists on classics and new flavors you may have never tried. But, beware, reservations can be tough. Plan ahead or go early and sit a the front bar (all the better for people watching). Next time you find yourself on a trip to the West Coast, don’t miss out on this Los Angeles restaurant or several others that will make your trip memorable (and perhaps add an inch or two to your waist!).
