For the longest time, L.A. was all about The Grove, Century City or Rodeo Drive. And while I respect, admire and appreciate all those places, Abbot Kinney offers something a little extra. It's the closest thing to a walking neighborhood I've experienced in the City of Angels, and the store associates there are so absurdly friendly. Definitely hit the Le Labo store and stuff your face at Gjelina. A lot.
