Hollywood Boulevard is one of LA's most well-known and trafficked staples. Whether you are dazzled by the stars on the Walk of Fame or captivated by famous landmarks like the Chinese Theatre and views of the Hollywood Sign, it is safe to say visitors come to this Boulevard looking to be wowed. While sights and flashy landmarks aren’t for all, there is one thing travelers and locals alike can enjoy - the food. Although there is an abundance of local eateries, bars and night venues, some of the best restaurants on Hollywood Boulevard can be found right in your own hotel. For us, that location was Delphine at the W Hollywood Hotel, located on the corner of Hollywood Blvd and Vine, in the heart of the Hollywood strip.     Delphine Eatery & Bar is located right off of the main boulevard and offers Contemporary American cuisine that is inspired by fresh and organic ingredients. The ambiance is inviting and gives off a cool California vibe with a splash of Miami chic. Seating is offered both inside and on the patio, and the décor is colorful and warm with a sophisticated flare. Besides the fresh atmosphere and creative cuisine, our visit was prompted by their new summer menu items. With so many refreshing new items, we had to make a trip and try a few (or more).
Getting up for Day 2 was a bit difficult.  Not because of too much imbibing but rather the short amount of hours sleeping after a long day.  But, we managed to get up and out by 9:30am. 9:45 AM - 10:30 AM - Breakfast: Fernet Branca Style with Count Niccolo Branca Fernet Branca is every bartenders favorite eye opener so it was the perfect spirit to start the day. Hosted by Count Niccoló Branca, we enjoyed 3 truly delicous cocktails made with Fernet: Eva Peron (Carpani Antica Formula, Fernet Branca, Domaine de Canton, Premium Ginger Beer and Lime) Charlotte's Web (a Fernet Milkshake made with Hendricks Gin, Brancamenta, Cafe Sambuca, Monin Vanilla Syrup, Half & Half, Angostura Aromatic Bitters, garnished with Cafe Borghetti Handwhipped Cream) Death's Wish (Death's Door Gin, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, Pun E Mes Aperitivo, Fresh Lemon Juice, Egg White, Sparking Asti)
