Chateau Marmont

Whenever we can't figure out where to go, we always choose Chateau Marmont. It's a place where the scene more than makes up for the food–not that the food is at all bad, but one doesn't come here for the cuisine as much as for the visual buffet of beautiful people on which your eyes can feast upon. I always enjoy having a catch-up drink or dinner here because they somehow mastered dispensing the perfect amount of heady L.A. glamour make you feel rewarded for simply having a night out. If you decide to increase the level of debauchery from there, it's all up to you. In that case, order spaghetti bolognese from room service. It'll hit you in all the right spots.
