Me and my friend Yang hadn't seen each other in a while and decided to catch up over dinner. She suggested Bottega Louie in Downtown L.A., so I was really excited because I'd never been (I've been super obsessed with it though, after seeing all those bloggers' pretty photos of macarons. Ahem. Nina).

It was everything I hoped it would be, and more! High ceilings, marble everywhere, little pink boxes, and macarons in every color of the rainbow.  Dinner was impressive, gorgeous and delicious. We shared the asparagus herb chicken, some pasta, and truffle fries with dipping sauce (soooo good). It helped that our waiter was super nice and friendly.

If you're ever in Downtown L.A., be sure to check it out. Don't forget to take home some macarons and cupcakes--they have a few unconventional flavors (Earl Grey tea, rose, and a few others). I didn't taste any I didn't like, that's for sure. ;)
