THE SOCIAL 101: NICOLE’S FAVORITE SPOTS FOR HOLIDAY PARTIES

Hi! Nicole here. The holiday season is in full swing, and today I’m excited to share a few of my favorite places to throw a fabulous holiday party. What I love about LA is that every neighborhood has its own charm and character, and if you look hard enough, you can always find a place that fits what you’re looking for.

PARTYING WITH A PASTA PRO

Avner Lavi may not be a household name, but he’s arguably one of LA’s carb cooking kings. A veteran of the local dining scene, he honed his skills at Italian hotspots like Sotto and Bestia before striking out on his own as chef and owner of Cento Pasta Bar, a critically acclaimed, roving pop-up that takes over local restaurants otherwise “dark” for lunch or dinner service.
