Here's what you know about LA based electro-pop duo Capital Cities: they know how to write insanely catchy pop songs. Here's what you may not know about Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian: they're both really into restaurants.
Capital cities' "perfect for" picks
"Zinque is the perfect place to get severely caffeinated, have a delicious breakfast sandwich and feign doing real work while you actually people watch and daydream about projects that will likely never come to fruition."
"This Omakase (chef's choice tasting menu) style restaurant is beautifully designed and serves incredibly creative dishes bursting with flavor and unique ingredient pairings. The desserts, conceptualized by my friend Isa Fabro, are also amazing."
“Although the line to get in here can be very long on a Friday or Saturday night, there are many great things about this bar. For starters, the majority of the bar is an outdoor patio with little seating nooks. During the winter they put up a tent and heat lamps, so you still get that outdoor feel without freezing. They also have a superb playlist and various rooms which lend themselves to spontaneous encounters.”
"Located on the same property as a car wash, Machos Tacos cranks out the most delicious chicken burritos in LA. The meat is slow cooked in a pot with carrots, tomatoes, bay leaves and other mystery spices."
The diversity of people and activities that you witness along this bike path is astounding and never gets old. One minute you see a four year old skateboard prodigy, next a homeless man speaking with a pigeon, followed by a family of Italian tourists riding Segways dressed in Ferragamo.”
