Dial a Los Angeles Celeb
Q:my daughter would like to see a hot spot where celebs eat lunch. Hollywood, West Hollywood, Santa Monica area.

-- "Courtney"

A:Good heavens.
We're not Dial A Celeb!
If they ever invent Lo-Jack for celebs, we won't be on the wait list, that's for certain!

How could we know where a celeb might eat lunch? And for that matter, what makes celebrity? Yesterday we sat next to Aaron whatshisface from The Bachelor. We had no idea who he is. Celebrity is relative, my dear.

That said, we'll throw you a bone.

a. Celebs come out at night. Dolce on Melrose is hot hot hot.
b. But if that's not an option.... Just as Michael's in New York is to the magazine world, The Ivy still commands plenty of power on North Robertson. Rumour has it a celeb has dropped in on occasion. Ditto with Hugo's on Santa Monica.

We still think you should go to a restaurant for the food. But hey, that's just us.
