What could make one of the world's most glamorous strips of retail real estate even more attractive than it already is? Well, add some fabulous food, wine, and cocktails to the mix. That is what occurred this past Sunday as Los Angeles Times and Food & Wine's THE TASTE took over posh Rodeo Drive. Brunch bites from many of L.A.'s favorite brunch spots, along with bellinis, mimosas, and Bloody Mary's filled the streets of 90210 and provided a good excuse for a little retail therapy along the way. With a backdrop of Bottega Veneta, Tom Ford, YSL, and Brioni paired with a generous sampling of lobster sliders, apple pancakes, quiches, and gazpacho, the Fashion Bites Brunch was just what the Food Fashionista ordered.
