Indulge in the eye candy.
For my mom's birthday, I took her out to Bottega Louie for Saturday brunch and macarons! If you haven't been to Bottega Louie, it is definitely worth the trip out to LA. It's a lovely experience, and the food is absolutely divine. We ordered a lobster hash, blueberry lemon ricotta pancakes, and portobello fries – and of course, a few macarons and beignets for the road!
