Artcles By Laura Schreffler
Oh, hello Oscars, is that you? Although the Academy Awards aren’t until February, it sure felt that way at the Palladium on November 14, which hosted the A-list, star-studded Hollywood Film Awards.
What did you miss this week in Los Angeles? If fashion or food is your jam, then the answer here is: a lot. Gucci, Maje and Burberry had a big week in the City of Angeles, which also saw the opening of a Dom Perignon pop-up bar at the Beverly Wilshire and the re-opening of Power House Hollywood.
In our opinion, Barton G. is one of the most exciting new restaurants to open in Los Angeles in ages. From the moment you step inside the West Hollywood eatery, every single moment is an exceptional experience for your senses.
Celebrity chef Gary Arabia founded Global Cuisine in 2000, a full-service catering and event production company located in the heart of Hollywood at The Lot Studios.
