This is my view, arguably my favorite foil yet for typing: sfumato on the Hollywood Hills, woolens for seats, plaster patches in exposed concrete, moody photography by Kevin Hanley. LA food truck phenom turned entrepreneurial polyglot Roy Choi – “the Jay Z of the food world” – has dreamed up a winner in The Line Hotel, sited in/inspired by Koreatown. This place is a riot of cool: from the hot pots and halogen at Pot to the greenhouse magic of the Commissary, from the helium balloons bobbing above the lobby bar to the quirky wares at the Poketo outpost (including this LA-made stoneware bangle). I could stay forever, but sadly, I must check out today, which I’ll do as soon as I slurp up spicy instant ramen delivered in a Stanley thermos. Swoon.
