I am trying to find a place to spend a few hours visiting with a good friend who is staying downtown, starting at about 3 pm. on a weekday. She is French, travels extensively and has excellent taste so I want it to be somewhere nice and suitable for talking. I haven’t been to Bottega Louie, would that work for having tea and perhaps a small plate and/or pastry? Has anyone been to the American Tea Room in DTLA or have other suggestions? I can drive somewhere, but the time frame is not working with my usual ideas.
Many thanks in advance,
