4648 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood
Kismet is one of the most refreshing restaurants in Los Angeles, not because the Mediterranean food naturally leans healthy but because it’s not trying to be healthy. Sommelier Kae Whalen curates the wine list. And while you don’t know what you’re getting in advance (embrace the unknown!), breathe easy in the knowledge that, like Kismet’s light, bright Mediterranean-leaning food, the wines are best-in-class and reasonably priced. Order via Caviar for at-home delivery.
Twig & Twine Flowers (Closed)
716 N. Virgil Ave., Hollywood
Equal parts floral boutique and adorable gift shop, Twig & Twine is best enjoyed in person rather than over the phone. Owner Heather Williams' calling card is incorporating unexpected elements into her arrangements, be they succulents or rare, alien-looking blooms.
