Bottega Louie

I am in love!

I'm in love with Bottega Louie.

After having a delectable sushi diner in downtown LA, I was jonzing for something I always do after any kind of activity.

Walking down 7th street, we came upon a buzzing hot spot.

Here, is where I met Bottega 11:00 p.m.

We walked into a simple, crisp, wide open space with a full bar and exquisite patisserie.

I mean, what more could I want.....alcohol and sweets.

My paradise.

From what I could see, their specialty were these tiny, melt in your mouth, colorful macaroons that are stacked high in the display cases.

''I'll take a big box of macaroons, oh and how about a passion fruit tart and a coffee infused creme brulée tart for my husband.''

The crème brulée tart did not make it past the door and the passion fruit was dramatically devoured on the cab ride to the hotel. Why we didn't just eat there, like normal people, at a table, is still a mystery....I think the sheer joy of all these treats made me a little nutty...or maybe the responsible party was misses Champagne and mister Sake.

Anyway, the first thing I noticed this morning, was the beautifuly pacakaged macaroons sitting prettitly on the hotel desk.

Can you guess what I'm having for breakfast?:-)

P.S When I die, I want to be buried in Bottega Louie...under the cabinet with the stacked macaroons.


  1. So much fun!!!
