There’s a certain gluten free peanut butter granola that I can’t get enough of. I love it with chocolate almond milk as a late night indulgence, or over greek yogurt with chia seeds and fruit for breakfast. The only problem is, it costs around $6 a bag, which categorizes it as a luxury grocery item for me, making my inner penny-pincher clench just a little every time I buy it.
With just a night in Lima before heading into the Amazon rainforest, I had one singular objective. To. Eat. My. Face. Off. I knew the upcoming retreat included fasting and vegetarianism and probably wouldn’t be much of a culinary indulgence, so with less than 24 hours to gobble up Lima, I went big and took a friend’s recommendation, booking a table for the tasting menu at Astrid Y Gastón.
Food is art. Like great theater, or a sculpture that brings tears to my eyes, or dancing, food stirs my soul and makes me feel alive. Pull up a chair and indulge with me!
Roy and his team consistently deliver on details and cool, creating spaces you want to see and be seen in. And the Line Hotel sure is a pretty one.
Roy’s next restaurant, Commissary opens later this year, and will occupy this greenhouse on the rooftop deck, smack in the middle of K-town overlooking Wilshire Blvd.
The Line Hotel’s pool: a sure bet to be a mid-town hot spot this summer.
