Gayle King’s Favorite (L.A.) Things


The CBS This Morning co-host and editor-at-large of O, The Oprah Magazine won’t have much time to explore Los Angeles when she drops in for the mag’s O, You! event this weekend. That didn’t keep King from telling us which two iconic places she’s sure to hit:

Joan’s on Third
Oh Lord, have mercy. They have a grilled cheese sandwich with some braised beef brisket. I don’t even know what the heck it is it’s so good! Then they do another thing, a raisin grilled cheese with goat cheese and they mix it with a little fig jam. It is a-MAZ-ing. 

The Beverly Wilshire
It’s my favorite hotel because it’s right in the heart of shopping. You can run down to Saks or Neiman Marcus… They know I exercise and I travel with these workout DVDs, so when they know I’m coming they have weights in the room and a mat. You just appreciate someone who says, Hey we’re glad you came.
