One of the best things about opening a new location is discovering all the great things about our new neighborhood. Whether it’s a new go-to lunch spot, fellow shopping destinations, or just a great place to walk the dog, Echo Park has a lot to offer!
One for the boys – this limited edition hat shop is the creative output of Andrew Potash, the brother of our talented jeweler Nick Potash. Crafted in LA from deadstock vintage and hard-to-find fabrics, each headpiece is unique.
Hands down the best tacos in town. Located right across the street from Esqueleto LA, I’ve been chowing down here almost every day. Try the quesadilla, a weird but wonderful concoction made by folding a griddled cheese slab and special sauce into a handmade corn tortilla.
I was totally lamenting the loss of my fav vintage spots in Oakland, until I found Collection, located just a few doors down from Esqueleto. With a mix of edgy designer duds (Anne Demeulemeester mint leather blazer? Yes please!) and perfect 60s/70s frocks (I walked out wearing a little pink polyester number), this shop has my style on lockdown.
Though it consists of little more than a takeout window occupying a slim corner of the local 99 Cent store, Dinette packs a serious gourmet punch. A morning walk here for an expert latte and mind-blowing pastry has become a daily ritual.
Our new spot is just around the corner from the Dodger’s stadium, which is located in beautiful Elysian Park. Though I could never root for anyone other than my Oakland A’s, the park itself has so much to offer. With miles and miles of green grass, picnic tables and off-leash trails, my dog is thrilled with our new neighborhood.
