It's been a busy year for me with a lot of travel, a lot of writing, and the launch of a new web site, so I figured I would just compile my latest restaurant reviews for Frontiers Magazine in one place.

Frontiers is a great bi-weekly glossy magazine here in LA, so I cover a lot of local restaurants as well as some travel for them. Here are my reviews from this spring.

JustLuxe: Edition London Hotel

I love London, but I never have enough time there. During a recent trip, I had an overnight layover of  about 18 hours - just enough time to check out one of the city's trendiest new hotels, the Edition London.


I met some friends for drinks, went out for dinner nearby, then luxuriated in my room and got a great night's sleep before my flight.

Check out more about the hotel, it's uber-hip scene, the trendy restaurant and bar there, and why I think Burt Reynolds would be right at home in the rooms.
