LOS ANGELES As far as the ELLE Canada team is concerned, there’s only one way to beat jet lag: with comfort food. On a recent jaunt to DTLA, we ate plenty—including fried chicken with jalapeno potato salad, fries and braised greens—at Basque-meets-Mediterranean resto Breva. Helmed by L.A. super-chef Casey Lane, Breva is in the buzzy Hotel Figueroa. The boutique property, which opened in 1926, was restored into an urban oasis that melds its Spanish architectural roots with a sprinkle of gothic chic. Think exposed wood beams and Spanish tiles with quirky extras, like a coffin-shaped pool. Despite our long day of travel, we lingered at Breva for dessert—a mille feuille with honey-mascarpone cream—before falling into our king-size beds, dreams of carbohydrates dancing in our heads.
