Ok, so it’s pretty common knowledge that everyone loves brunch. (If you don’t love brunch you have problems that need to be tended to, so stop reading this blog and go figure them out.)
Phew! Now that they’re gone, us brunch lovers can indulge in this first stop in what will be a series of Sunday brunches. Hope that they make you drool a little and inspire you to try a new spot for you next lazy weekend meal with friends.
Welcome to the restaurant at the new ACE hotel in Downtown LA!
After brunch, we took a peek upstairs. The rooftop lounge was an Amazonian dream. It was all open air and drenched in sun. The decor was an inviting medley of wood, leather and native tapestry; tons of casual seating that begged us to come back with a big group of friends. This is going to be a major turn up come summer.
After leaving the ACE, Rachel and I walked a few blocks (past the iconic Rialto-theater-turned-Urban-Outfitters-concept-location; see below) to a designer consignment shop that I have been following on Instagram for awhile now, “Buttons and Bows.”
The shop is owned by the offspring of Bob Marley, which is rad.
And there you have it! Sunday brunch and a little boutiquing! Thanks to my girl Rachel for coming along for the ride and wielding the camera like a pro whenever I asked her to be my stand-in blogger boyfriend.
Until next Sunday, enjoy! (Also – if there are spots you’d like me to try out and blog about, lemme know in the comments below!)
