new yorkers in LA dinner

It’s crazy to think that I’ve been living in LA for almost FOUR years now (in September!), right?  Well, believe it or not, there’s quite a few of us out here on the west coast now…so a dinner was in order.  Whisper Lounge at The Grove was gracious enough to host us girls, and guys, the dinner was AMAZING.  We were all freaking out about how good the food was and there are plenty of Instagrams to prove it.

  1. Hola! Great giveaway, I love The Grove! Mostly because I can spend a whole day there shopping, lunching and people watching. Add the celeb spotting, Extra filming and the whimsical Tinseltown pop-ups and promotions -youve got an entire LA experience in one location. Xx

  2. Hi Jamie. 🙂 Looks like you girls enjoyed your dinner at The Whisper Lounge.
    Things I love about the Grove…it’s not your typical mall/shopping center. I love the fountain, the drinks and desserts at The Whisper Lounge, there is always some cool event going on, Kiehl’s…and I especially love how it is lit up and so festive during the Holidays – it’s like Disneyland but you can get your shop on.

  3. I LOVE shopping at stores such as Topshop, J. Crew Mens & Barneys. I usually follow that up with happy hour at Whispers Lounge!

  4. I love shopping at The Grove! Especially during Christmas time. Every detail that goes into the shopping experience makes it so magical. From the Christmas music playing throughout to the falling snowflakes. It gets me in the holiday spirit.

  5. I love the open air concept of The Grove, it makes shopping and hanging out there for the day enjoyable. The fountains are beautiful to watch and there always seems to be something going on.

  8. What I love most about the Grove is how magical it feels every time I go. It’s like Disneyland for adults or a beautiful oasis. It makes me happy to be in LA and less homesick. I love the movies in the summer and magic at Christmas time. Of course the shopping and food is great too though 🙂 I just love the ambiance.

  9. @sueb91 Love holiday shopping with the grove dressed for Christmas (in flipflops – as an east coast native I think I love that most…). And I also love the events the stores put on – Yoga at Athleta, Running Club at Nike!

  10. The Grove is a great place to hangout. It does NOT feel like a traditional “mall”. The food at the restaurants there is wonderful and It is great seeing the different people there. There is always something fun going on there that one can do or see.

  11. I love The Grove for so many reasons.. The breathtaking water fountain (with water show), the abundance of great shops, See’s Candies, Dylan’s, and Sprinkles to satisfy my sweet tooth, and the trolley – which never gets old, though I don’t have children and have ridden it a dozen + times already.

    The Grove is one of those places that I visit even just when I have no plans. Even if I spend the day walking around there, it’s enj

  12. What isn’t there to love about The Grove? I love all the great stores. I can get a good book, some clothes, great food, and some yummy treats all in one place. My dogs and the dogs that I dog sit love going there to visit Three Dog Bakery! Two dogs that I watch were recently highlighted on the Three Dog Bakery Facebook and Twitter sites, their owners loved it! On top of it all I can go to see a movie after my shopping is done. I spent my last birthday there for dinner, some candy from Dylan’s Candy Bar, and finally a movie. I most recently enjoyed going to Barnes & Noble to get a CD signed by Matthew Morrison. The Grove literally has it ALL. My family loves the pictures that I take and post to Facebook during the holidays too.

  13. Other post cut off and posted too soon :'(

    To finish: The Grove is one of those FEW places that I visit even just when I have no plans. Even if I spend the day there, solely walking around, it’s enjoyable. I moved to LA from the suburbs of the east coast, so needless to say there was definitely culture shock right away. The Grove has just always been a place that is consistently fun, safe, and absolutely gorgeous. It’s always one of my first sti

  14. I love how perfect it is. If you grow up in any other city in the us it’s such a change from the enclosed and dreary indoor malls. I love the fountain and going to Jcrew and getting all orange gummy bears from Dylan’s candy bar..

  15. Honestly, what I love most about the Grove is the atmosphere. Every time I visit the grove, I go with my best friends and we end up having such a good time. Therefore, when I think about the grove, I think of all the good times and long talks I have had with friends as we rummage thru anthropology, Nike, Barnes and nobles, eat ice cream, ride the trolley, stare at Mario Lopez, jam out with the live performers or just watch a movie. I must also add that the farmers market rocks! I love that place and once again, I love all of the live music! Oh and being there at night is the best because the place looks beautiful all lit up!

  16. I love the Grove. I love that it has my favorite farmers market, restaurants, desserts, drinks, and people. It’s cool that you can stargaze while they film Extra;the personalities you can encounter range from quirky, famous, or just like you and me. It’s a great place where different people can mix-shop, dine, enjoy music. The atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming. The concierge are classy and polite, and I love that they have free 2 hr self parking with the mobile App! All in all, the Grove is a great place to spend leisure time with plenty of free activities-fun for everyone.
