This weekend Tiny G and I hit Abbot Kinney to meet Tiny G’s doppelgänger HRM and his mom, Andrea, for brunch at Gjelina. First off, the staff there is the bomb. Couldn’t be friendlier, and Tiny G definitely had eyes for ladies at the front of the house. I had eyes for the chickpea stew with Israeli couscous, spiced yogurt and harissa:

And then we walked down to see my friend Andy, who is the “A” in the A+R Store, which was hopping! I am slightly obsessed with this porcelain Wellington boot vase I saw there from Czech designer Maxim Velčovský. Do I need one??? I think maybe yes…

  1. Wow, when the heck did you take the photo of the ceiling? It’s stunning! I must have been preoccupied with the two beauty boys. Lots of fun. I think the boot (filled with wild flowers) would make a perfect tongue-in-cheek touch to the kitchen.

  2. It’s stunning because I grabbed the photo off Gjelina’s website. The food shots I took. So much fun on Saturday – hope to see you soon!
