Had a family dinner at Bottega Louie in downtown LA. This is where we had conversations about birthing and raising children. This is where my cousin Mario says to me “Thank you Margaret Mead for your Nature vs. Nurture insight.” He has two daughters and I have none.
Back to Bottega…The interiors are stark and rich at the same time. Love all the marble and nod to Italian Renaissance. The dinner we had was OK: branzino, pasta, and pork chops but the bakery and desserts were fabulous, especially the macaroons and peanut butter terrine. Well worth a visit for a cocktail and a meaningful conversation.
