For this particular assignment, Jim was sent to LEVEL to experience the glitz and glamour that LA has to offer. In advance of award season, Jim was given a tour of the city along with some serious celeb treatment, staying at the same hotels and eating at restaurants that even A-listers have trouble getting in to.

“On the last night of my trip I have a reservation at Bestia, a cooler than cool, hard-to-get-past-the-front-door place in downtown’s Art District. I dine on toasted, homemade bread topped with squid ink aioli, chunks of lobster and tiny red chilies with opal basil.”
