Hollywood Hotspots

If anyone knows Hollywood, it is the staff at the L.A. Informer. Here are some of their picks for the hottest spots in the city of angels.

Tinas Favorite places to eat (and overhear a little gossip)

Jerry's Famous Deli
With over 600 menu items, you can't go wrong at Jerry's Famous Deli on Ventura Blvd. And if you're lucky you might find yourself rubbing elbows
with some of the famous Jerry lovers out there, like Adam Sandler, Will Smith, and the former Seinfeld cast.

Mr. Chow
Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills is a staple in any A-lister's diet. It's the perfect place to spend a romantic evening for two away from the tabloids or wine
and dine that elusive director you want to work with. Just beware - it's also a favorite haunt of the paparazzi looking to score a cover shot!

"Sushi Row"
Sushi row is a strip of sushi restaurants in Studio City where, as the name would imply, most of the big film studios in Los Angeles are located. And these little neighborhood sushi bars are also the favorite lunch stops for the big name stars who film there!

Cams Favorite places to spot stars

The Farmers Market
On the weekends, the Famers Market and The Grove, located at 3rd and Fairfax in Los Angeles, are the locals' favorites for sunshine organic produce and schmoozing. Catch celebs taking in the air and browsing the stalls while seeing and being seen!

Every celebrity needs to jet-set around the word. And for those who don't yet own their own jet, LAX, Los Angeles International Airport, is the place that they do it. The arrivals terminal is a paparazzo's dream when it comes to celebrity traffic.

Bar Marmont
Bar Marmont at the Chateau Marmont Hotel on Sunset Blvd in a fantastic place to catch an A-lister unwinding after a grueling day on the set. The decor is a throwback to the old glamour days of Hollywood, but the clientele is as young and hip as it gets.

Allies Favorite places to shop

3rd Street Promenade
This trendy strip of shops in Santa Monica includes fun and funky vintage clothing boutiques as well as current fashion finds. Mix in a few outdoor cafes and entertainment venues, and you have a fabulously fashionable day out.

Melrose Avenue
With edgy shops like Posers which anchored the 80's punk scene on one end all the way to the lux Fred Segal on the other, Melrose Ave is one of the few places in L.A. where you can find it all. Whatever your budget or taste, Melrose has the look that will make you feel like a star.

Rodeo Drive
Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills is the epitome of elegance. The most upscale boutiques, the flashiest salons, and, of course, the brightest bling. Shopping in Beverly Hills' Golden Triangle will surely make you feel like a Pretty Woman.
