Pico Boulevard in West LA has been a sleepy street for many years. A few restaurants are tucked along the street that have been there forever. And while I live only one mile from Pico Boulevard, I was not going to Pico very often until Khong Ten opened up. And now there is Pikoh LA, located in the former Chan Dara space, that has added a new life to Pico Blvd. The space at Pikoh is modern, open, casual and inviting. The colors are clean, the decor is minimal and there is fresh greenery placed throughout the restaurant. There is a long bar for counter seating, a dining room separated by plants, the front section for happy hour seating and the main dining room. And there is outdoor seating as well. Pikoh is a perfect neighborhood restaurant. Open all day, they serve breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner. But more than having a coffee bar, a cocktail bar and food, Pikoh has delicious, flavorful food that will keep you coming back! This is because Chef Ricardo Zarate, of Rosaline and Los Balcones Studio City, is behind Pikoh LA! And, while this is not another Peruvian restaurant, this all-day casual concept features California cuisines with Peruvian and Asians flavors.
I never need an excuse to eat ice cream but incentive is never a bad thing. So, here is an incentive to head to Humphry Slocombe on Abbot Kinney in Venice....Ice Cream Happy Hour! What more do you need to know other than every Wednesday, between 2pm and 6pm, if you purchase a single scoop, your friend will get a free scoop. Well, perhaps you want to know what you will find at Humphry Slocombe. Humphry Slocombe opened their first store in 2008 in the Ferry Building in San Francisco. Today there are locations in the Mission District and Oakland and last summer, in August 2019, they opened a location in Venice Beach. The compact space has a bright, casual, inviting feel. 
Summer is officially over and fall is underway. School is back in session and we await the change of season. That is, everywhere but California. Here is Los Angeles, it is still over 90 degrees and sometimes that makes it hard to get into a work frame of mind. So why not head to Viviane Restaurant in the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills for an afternoon. If enjoying breakfast or lunch outdoors with a view of the pool is not incentive enough, perhaps the new extended happy hour menu will be. Happy Hour at Viviane Restaurant Welcome fall with Chef Michel Hung's daily happy hour menu. Every day (all seven in the week), happy hour is offered from 2:30pm - 7:30pm. So whether you have the luxury of having your afternoons free, are looking for somewhere to go after work or want to relax with friends during the weekend, Viviane is the answer. viviane-restaurant-at-hotel-avalon-1
