Ho­tel Figueroa

ELLE (Canada) - - Travel - CARLI WHITWELL

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.
