We leave the 'hood for meals

 Yesterday, after my open house at 4552 Morse in Studio City, my husband and I ate at one of my favorite places -- Laurel Tavern in Studio City.  And then, after burgers and brews, we got some gelato in Tujunga Village.  (Yes, we can really pack it away.) And today, after running another real estate-related errand, we had a great brunch in Silverlake at Dusty's Bistro.  It would be really great to have these kind of places where we live in Burbank, although Tony's Darts Away is a good start on the gastropub trend.

Okay, this is less about real estate and more about restaurants and the crowds they draw.  Crowd in Studio City: Young to middle aged, but it was early.  Everybody seemed friendly, and deeply engaged in  conversation.  Extremely casual, but in a moneyed way.  And boob jobs. 

Later, on the street in front of the Tujunga Village gelato place, we saw a guy masturbating a girl with a red wallet/clutch.  Outside of her clothes.  They were trying to be discreet, but.  No, I am NOT kidding.  I do not know if they'd just eaten gelato. 

Crowd for brunch in Silverlake:  Really young to not-quite middle-aged -- hipster babies and their tatted-up moms and dads.  And a lot of people who looked like they just rolled out of bed (it was late morning, after all).  Messy hair and porkpie hats, but again in a moneyed way.  Needless to say, we were NOT the coolest people in the room.  Anyway, the food was great there and I can't wait to go back.
