Wilshire Boulevard Temple and Caffe Concerto

I went with a group of Skirball Volunteers to the fantastically restored Wilshire Boulevard Temple. Here you see two of my favorite things: stained glass windows and Hugo Ballin murals! (Hugo did the murals at the Griffith Observatory, among many other LA locations.) We had a wonderful, informative tour, and it was amazing how beautiful the Temple is now.

Afterward, we walked over to Caffe Concerto on Serrano Avenue, which was another terrific find for the day.

Here you see my seared salmon salad. It was delicious - so fresh and flavorful. I highly recommend it! And, while you're there, take a minute or two to stroll by the macaroon cases. My favorite was the salted caramel. There's also a full bar, so something for everyone.

Caffe Concerto does not have a website. Their address is 610 S. Serrano in LA, 90005. Phone is (213) 738-0909.
