Our LA Wish List
Don’t get us wrong. Tinseltown ain’t all bad. Here’s a few imports that SD could benefit from...
A shopping district like Melrose. And a Barneys!
More high fashion—in shops, on the street, at work.
A light rail to the beach.
Venice Beach and Abbot Kinney: the shops, the food, the freaks.
Big wide boulevards, like Wilshire and Sunset, that serve as city arteries and double as highways.
Iconic restaurants like The Ivy and Dan Tana’s, and more maître d’s in tuxes.
More Jewish delis and at least one JFD.
The Polo Lounge. That Martinique wallpaper at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
A storied college crosstown rivalry, like UCLA vs. USC.
The Broad. The Getty. The Pantages. The Ahmanson.
A progressive mayor with 200,000 Instagram followers.
Direct flights to Paris, Istanbul, Hong Kong.
