Next I tried the chicken sandwich on pretzel bread, and mini tropezienne from Rockenwagner. I am definitely going to show up for their $5 happy hour in Brentwood! I ate a sandwich recently at Whole Foods on their pretzel bread which is AMAZING!

The Kalamansi creamsicles from the Nest restaurant at the Marriott in LA LIVE were spectacular! They were made from limes from the #Philippines and were creative tasty creations!

Patrick, the General Manager of Rao’s Hollywood, told me that the roasted red peppers were a family recipe and that their New York City location started in 1896 is the oldest restaurant that has never moved! I cannot wait to go for a full meal!

 

Jason is a Free Diver and Fantastic Chef! I enjoyed his California Sea Bass and look forward to tasting all his tempting treats at @MalibuPier which is now just two months old!

Another Gorgeous #SantaMonica Sunday #sunset
