Homer and Janet by Homer Review

The Marais District, covering swaths of Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissments, has a distinctively gritty glamour that reveals it to be one of the city’s great incubators for new French food, fashion and lifestyle trends. It is here Moïse Sfez took on the challenge of creating street food establishments Homer in 2017 and Janet by Homer in 2022, doing it in such a way they both transcend the novelty of being regional American comfort food offered at stylized lunch counters matching up with New England lobster shacks and New York delis. Overwhelming local response and Sfez winning the 2018 Lobster Roll World’s Championship title in Portland, Maine, solidified him as a Paris restaurateur and one of France’s hottest culinary stars.

Review: The Shay – Destination by Hyatt

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: For a two-night business trip, I stayed at The Shay – Destination by Hyatt in Culver City. The lobby is not just a place to check in but truly a place to gather. As you walk into the hotel from the valet, you’ll find several places to go: spaces to sit and talk, to sit and wait, or to work, plus an area to play billiards and even a bar to get a drink or sit by a cozy fire. Off to the left, the check-in desk is more secluded than the main lobby. Check-in was easy with a friendly staff who verified my reserved room and length of stay. They explained the ways to get around town without a car, told me about the restaurants on property, and asked if I’d like to make a reservation, which I had already arranged. It could not have been any smoother, and everyone welcomed me with a warm smile.
