Felix Fun with Ron Handler
I don’t recommend seeing art on an empty stomach, so here’s a couple of tips if you’re staying at the Hollywood Roosevelt for the Felix Art Fair or just having fun in Hollywood.
7000 Hollywood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90028
A vintage Hollywood Boulevard hotel.
Experience the culturally iconic city of Hollywood and its rich entertainment heritage at the Hollywood Roosevelt. Located on Hollywood Boulevard, the hotel is surrounded by the best Los Angeles attractions, landmarks, shopping, and nightlife. See the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, people-watch on the Sunset Strip, and snap a photo of the Hollywood Sign.
Clark Street Diner
6145 Franklin Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90068
Clark Steet Diner is pretty fantastic for coffee and breakfast, also lunch. Probably about 10 min from the Hollywood Roosevelt by car. (Very crowded on the weekends) 🍳🥞
L’antica Pizzeria Da Michele
1534 N McCadden Pl
Los Angeles, CA 90028
There’s really good pizza nearby: L’Antica Pizzeria Da Michele. The recipes here are the same as those at the famous original L'Antica in Napoli. You can walk there from the Fair. (Definitely book a table beforehand.) Mozza Pizzeria is fantastic too; however, you’ll have to drive about 10 min. Booking a table there would be a smart move as well.
L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele debuted in the heart of Hollywood in 2019, the first U.S. location of the world-renowned Neapolitan pizzeria. L'Antica’s authentic pizza is made using the same centuries-old recipe, techniques, and Italian imported ingredients as those of the original L'Antica in Naples, established in 1870. Head Pizzaiolo Michele Rubini helms the Hollywood pizzeria, which also serves many Italian and Mediterranean specialties. Guests who visit L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele are welcomed into beautiful “courtyards," which serve as central gathering points where they can view pizzas being prepared in the restaurant’s imported stone oven.
718 N Highland Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90038
If you feel like French food, try La Petit Trois on Highland Ave. It’s delish for steak frites and mussels mariniere. The burger is pretty epic too.
La Petit Trois is too small to accommodate parties of larger than 6 guests, so be sure to make a reservation.
641 N Highland Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90036
LA’s Trailblazing, James Beard Award–Winning Osteria Mozza.
When acclaimed chef Nancy Silverton opened Osteria Mozza in 2007, she had already co-founded iconic venues like Campanile and La Brea Bakery and working with culinary icons including Jonathan Waxman and Wolfgang Puck. It's no surprise that Mozza has repeatedly been named one of the very best Italian restaurants (and restaurants, period) in Los Angeles. Silverton has since gone on to open additional restaurants including Pizzeria Mozza and chi SPACCA.
Musso & Frank
6667 Hollywood Blvd
Hollywood, CA 90028
Musso & Frank is always a fun place for a martini (their martinis are famous). Just a few blocks away from the Roosevelt, Musso's is great for dinner, steaks, fish, and old-school Hollywood style. The place opened in 1919, and you’ll feel it immediately when you walk in. Numerous films were shot there. If you can’t get a table, don’t fret; the bar and counter usually turn over frequently.
From the site: "Before the iconic Hollywood sign was built, The Musso & Frank Grill was here. And for premieres and finales, through awards seasons and writers’ strikes, we’ve been here. Passed down through three generations, Musso’s is a Hollywood staple — known as much for its commitment to tradition as it is for its superior food and classic ambiance. In fact, Musso’s looks the way it did when Charlie Chaplin dined here, and our menu is so esteemed — so classic — it’s gone virtually unchanged for nearly 100 years. Step in our door — and into another time."
