Gossip for BreakfastPart of: Food , Gossip , LA
[Breakfast: 2 hard-boiled eggs, vanilla yogurt and green tea]
Animal is on my short list of best restaurants in LA. Its food is consistently great. I've been a bit reluctant to write about it because it's getting harder and harder to get into unless you want to go late. It's where Mozza's chefs go after work on Friday nights I've heard. You know a place is good when chefs go there regularly. Apparently there are a lot of star sightings there. Last time I saw Ilan from Top Chef fame (not a star, but I suppose a celebrity). Does he work? I've also seen him lunching at Joan's on Third. I wish he would stop following me.
I have such a crush on Animal. Too bad the days of popping in on a Sunday or Monday night are long gone. Soon you'll need a reservation three weeks in advance. My source told me that Chefs Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook of Animal are going to be named Food and Wine magazine’s best chefs of the year. They totally deserve it.
