Where were you at 4pm on a school day in 2003?
If you’re between the ages of 20 and 30, there’s a good chance you were sitting on your couch watching MTV. Specifically, TRL. More specifically, watching La La on TRL. (You might have even been watching the episode in which our co-founders Chris & Andrew met - true story.)
In addition to being the VJ you spent your afternoons with, La La went on to act, produce, and write a best-selling book - not to mention running one of the best celebrity Snapchats out there. She also happens to be an expert on eating in New York City, which is no surprise given she’s from Brooklyn and is married to a fellow hometown hero.
Check out her NYC restaurant picks below, and catch her in the new season of Power, premiering this Sunday July 17th on Starz.
La la's "perfect for" picks
"This is a small, low key sports bar. Has a super chill vibe and is great for watching a game with friends."
"There is nothing I love more than a girls night out. No matter where we go we always have the best time, but I love to go to dinner with my girls so we can all get caught up when everyone's in the city together. Mercer Kitchen is really cool. It has a great atmosphere and delicious deserts."
"The best thing about NYC is that there are so many places that are open late. There's a great taco spot, Empellón Al Pastor in the East Village. They have delicious drinks too!"
"Nomad Restaurant at the Nomad Hotel is one of my favorite places for date night. The food is amazing and it has this gorgeous atrium space so you can look up at the sky while you enjoy dinner. It's definitely a great spot for a romantic dinner."
"You can't beat a slice of NY pizza! There are so many great pizza places scattered around the city."
