The cavernous dining room reminds me of a SoHo loft. The crowd comes from diverse industries and backgrounds, showcasing all that’s great about LA. Grab a table by the window or get a leather booth near the back. One cautionary note: Conversations can carry over from other tables, even if you’re not that close. Be wary of being overheard! Bottega Louie does everything right, and you can’t go wrong with a classic breakfast. But be sure to order the beignets with raspberry compote—maybe order two so you don’t feel bad about not sharing!
