A Taste of L.A.

Serious foodies will make a pilgrimage to L.A. this month for the third annual Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival (August 21–25, lafw.com). Dozens of celebrichefs like Giada, Morimoto, and Bayless, plus wineries like Leviathan, Justin, and Tablas Creek, will be at various venues around the downtown area and in Beverly Hills. For a stay worthy of such dining, rest your head at nearby SLS Hotel Beverly Hills, which itself has two world-class restaurants, the Philippe Starck-designed Bazaar and the superchic Tres by chef José Andrés. And if, after all this grazing and eating, you can stomach the thought of donning a bikini, head up to the SLS rooftop pool and take in one delicious view of the city. slshotels.com/beverlyhills

Affordable Hawaii

Hotels along Honolulu’s Waikiki shore are going boutique and cheap

Say aloha (and by that, we mean goodbye) to Hawaii mega-resorts, as boutique hotels have been popping up all along Waikiki. The most recent arrival is Vive Hotel Waikiki, open July 15. Under Joie de Vivre ownership, there’s the new Coconut, where rooms come with kitchens, and The Shoreline (pictured left), which has hip decor and offers stays for as little as $139 per night. Waikiki: why not?

 

87
