Big Lots is a super discount warehouse of a supermarket that sells everything in bulk.
Philippe Starck seems to have some sort of BFF thing going with the sbe group, who have a number of high-end restaurants in town, and just opened their first LA hotel.
For me Philippe is a bit 90’s now (how long ago WAS the Royalton Phillippe?) but hey, it will probably do very well, and I will no doubt have a cocktail or two there.
However, in this city with its incredible amount of visionary design talent, it is a little bit sad that the portly Frenchman still dominates the market.
