Bissel House

Bissel House

Los Angeles, USA

Itai??i??s a businessman who left the East Coast for the milder South California that built this Victorian mansion in 1887. Converted into a b&b in the ai???90s, Bissel House retains all the charm of a family house. Mornings here have the taste of a ritual where all guests sit together around the oval table while the owner serves a delicious and perfect breakfast. The 7 rooms have flowery tapestries and you might find a vintage laced long dress hanging in your wardrobe, a reminder of the dinner parties often hosted by Anna Bissel at the beginning of the 19th century. Bissel House is located in South Pasadena, an elegant small town close to Los Angeles that every second Sunday of the month hosts the famous Rose Bowl Flea vintage market.

The walls and floors covered in Swiss pine have the honey colour of the chestnut, the tables are covered in white embroidered tablecloths and the big stove sits in the middle of the room, according to the local tradition. In the kitchen, multi-awarded chef Markus Baumgarten delights his clients with superb dishes.

New York, USA

When, in 2004, Taavo Somer and William Tigertt came up with the idea to open ai???a rugged clandestine colonial American tavernai???, they made the right choice. The cuisine is simple and rustic inspired by old traditions but with European influences. This is without doubt one of our favourite restaurants in town. The leaflet says ai???Oysters, Caviar, Midnight Burgers, Fromage, Frites, Sundae, Music and Dancingai???, but we guarantee that itai??i??s much more than this. The family also owns a chain of barbershops with vintage dAi??cor, one of which is annexed to the restaurant. Deeply cool.
