Fodor's Expert Review Melrose Avenue
Melrose Avenue is a tale of two streets. West of Fairfax Avenue is a haven of high-end boutique shopping, chichi restaurants, and avant-garde galleries. To the east of Fairfax is much grittier, where street style is more in vogue, with sneaker stores, head shops, fast casual food, and vintage boutiques. Fans of Melrose Place will be excited to learn that the eponymous street actually exists and is home to upscale shops and restaurants. Instagram junkies will recognize a number of photo hot spots like the shockingly pink Paul Smith store or graffitied angel wings along numerous storefronts.
