Louise Roe's Most Insta-Worthy Restaurants & Rooftops in LA

Louise Roe here, bringing you more ways to take a bite out of life in LA! I've lived here for nearly 10 years, but I find that there are always new places to discover. LA is much more of a foodie city than people realize, and it’s getting better every day. I remember when I first moved here, great options were not as plentiful. But today, everywhere you look there’s amazing coffee, delicious healthy food options, and plenty of cheat-day worthy places to chow down at. Something LA also does really well? Beautifully designed spaces, whether it be an adorable sidewalk café or a stunning rooftop with panoramic views. Make sure to check out my favorite Insta-worthy (and yummy!) hotspots next time you're in town.

Love Taza's Favorite Eats in NYC

The best food I've eaten in my life is scattered across this special island I get to call home. From the place on the corner where you can grab your favorite slice to that fancier spot just down the street that has the ambiance and menu just right, you can find whatever you’re craving here in New York City. I moved to Manhattan when I was 18 years old for college and all these years later, it's the food scene that I can't fathom ever saying goodbye to (and I've got a slightly larger waistline to prove it).By Love TazaSponsor content courtesy of Capital One®
