BEST SLICE OF BROOKLYN
Finding “authentic Brooklyn-style pizza” in Los Angeles may sound like an impossible quest, but Lupetti is making it possible. The pizzeria, which opened earlier this year in downtown’s booming Arts District, serves up delicious thin crust and comes with a delightful surprise: In Sheep’s Clothing, the speakeasy-esque, Japanese-kissa-style, hi-fi bar that is open from morning (for a fresh brew) to night (for a strong cocktail).
BEST WAKE & BAKE
“Life is short. Eat cookies.” That’s the motto hanging over the counter at Wilshire Boulevard’s Milk Jar Cookies, which continues to be our go-to when it comes to freshly baked treats, especially their chocolate chip cookies (the best in town, and we’re not the only ones who think so).
