Jean-Georges Makes His LA Debut

No, the Beverly Hilton didn’t spawn another head. That’s the Waldorf Astoria. It opens tomorrow with a big, beautiful Jean-Georges restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to guests and willing intruders. He’s also doing menus for a rooftop lounge. Hopefully Beverly Hills has acquired a taste for caviar.

The World Needs More Sushi Croissants

American Horror Story: the Exhibit

American Horror Story. That was once just a show you’d watch on TV. But now, it’s the biggest exhibition in the Paley Center’s history, a 4,000-square-foot journey of set pieces, costumes, props and clips to explore. But it’s also still a show.
