There’s a lot of yin-yang going on on this block. In the food category, it’s the watermelon-jalapeño lime juice at Pressed Juicery to the coconut-frosting-filled cupcakes at SusieCakes. For apparel, it’s the luxury of Isabel Marant and Rag and Bone at Stacey Todd versus the budget-friendly separates at Girl by Dee Rocco. Book your visit around a beauty appointment and linger, taking advantage of that Los Angeles unicorn, free valet service.
