It's been a long time.
Let's see, so in between the last time I blogged (not counting the J Gold map) and today, life's been...kind of busy. Between work, side projects, and you know...GETTING engaged, it's been crazy busy. It's a good thing twitter is a nice and simple platform for microblogging. Not to mention, my love affair with the Instagram iPhone app, blogging has almost become, dare I say, pointless?
But alas, sometimes it's just good to do some good ole writing and after today's visit to Aburiya Toranoko, the newest baby in Michael Cardenas' Downtown LA empire, I thought it'd be a good time to revive this blog. Well, let's not kid ourselves. I'll probably post again in 2012.
Anyhow, on to the next one.
Bottega Louie, on the corner 7th and Grand, in the old, and currently under bankruptcy protection, Brockman Building, elicits a lot of reactions.
"I love the design."
"I hate the design."
"It's too bare."
"All the hosts/hostesses/managers are good looking!"
"What? I can't hear you!?"
Bottega Louie is loud. Bottega Louie stands out. Bottega Louie screams to be noticed. And why shouldn't it?
