A Silver Lake staple, L & E Oyster Bar offers one of the best happy hours around. The restaurant opened in 2012 by a diverse and well-equipped team with a passion for good food and drinks. Executive chef Spencer Bezaire is in daily communication with several oyster farmers up and down the North American coast lines. Once he places his order, it’s a mere 12-18 hours before the oysters arrive at L & E Oyster Bar, available for your order. (It’s not unusual for the restaurant to go through 2,500 oyster in any given weekend.) L & E Oyster Bar restaurant downstairs offers the perfect setting for a special evening dining outside and the breezy upstairs bar is the ideal spot to enjoy happy hour with your friends. Find yourself a little sheepish about the raw seafood? The selective seasonal menu somehow still offers something for everyone with items divided into raw, smoked, grilled, steamed, and fried categories.

i went plant shopping last week, which always makes me happy and inspires me to track down more green. i think in another life i’d like to be a gardener. being around plants just makes me so content, and i’m always envious of the folks who work at the nursery. these homes all have nice touches of green, living things in them which looks so refreshing and pretty, especially with all that white. greenery looks great against black, too — and i’m actually considering painting my new house solid black (scandinavian style) with some white trim. but, i digress — here’s a look at loads of green and white. a mighty great green team.
every single thing i see from the denmark-based house doctor is just so lovely. so, this is my desperate-sounding plea for them to please find distribution here in the united states! i think they’d do smashingly well here — so how about it, doc? we need a spot to shop house doctor stateside! their collections are vast, and so well-designed — from accessories and homewares to furniture and home office gear, and beautiful lighting, too. i find myself cursing under my breath at my inability to make them mine. have a look. see what i mean?
