Bottega Louie in Los Angeles is in a refurbished downtown building, with marble tables and wood cafe chairs.  The pastries are works of art.  Even the insides of those raspberries have a squidge of jelly.

LA Barbecue Austin Texas

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

World famous (he was on Conan!) comedian Alex Koll visited me in Austin, Texas.  We wandered past LA Barbecue and of course you gotta stop and eat some brisket, with plastic forks, of course.  Of course!  Oh yeah, and Happy Birthday to Alex today!
