Posted: Updated:

We're here with Dana Wichard, Senior Curator for Gilt City Los Angeles, who with her team has scoured the city for the very best in fine dining, fitness, beauty treatments, and only in LA-experiences. She's here today with a sampling of food, fitness and fun!

Dana: At Gilt City, we provide our members with exclusive access to coveted lifestyle experiences—and today I'm here to show you some of the best in food, spa, beauty, fitness and fun that L-A has to offer. And these offers are only a click away on your computer, tablet or phone at

Let's start with food because the glamorous Cecconi's is here with a gastro-extravaganza! Meet Chef Alessio Biangini and Sommelier Marino Monferrato. They were selected as Best of LA for many reasons – including their amazing Cicchetti & cocktails and Piatto Unico with Prosecco … and more! Wow – look at this feast!


  • In West Hollywood, Cecconi's has THE Best Late Night Menu  - and much more!
  • They have created 3 special offers for Gilt City members starting at the incredibly low price of only $30 – for 2 people! That gets you a chef's tasting of 3 ciccheti items from Cecconi's famous wood fire oven and a specialty cocktail.
  • OR a Power Lunch for 2 for only $55 – complete with a glass of sparkling Prosecco or Peroni draft beer.
  • And for that very special occasion—birthdays, graduations, wedding and baby showers—the Butterfly Room package is available for only $2,000 for 10 guests to enjoy a divine wine-paired, five (5)-course family style lunch or dinner.
  • Other Best of LA restaurants include something for everyone: from Craft to the Sur Restaurant to the Pikey!

And after all that food, I want to either take a nap or work out! But we're not in Italy! Fitness is always in fashion in LA. And expert trainers Lara Gillman and Nick Hounslow from the Best of LA Cycle House are here to show us how each spin session provides a full-body workout that strengthens and tones your core, arms, backs and legs—burning up to 1,000 calories.


  • Gilt City members can get two exclusive offerings starting at only $40 -- which is almost 50 percent off their regular pricing – for a 3-class pack that includes a towel, cycling shoes and valet parking!
  • And, for just $75 – more than half off -- members can purchase a 6-class pack.
  • And, another thing that makes Cycle House truly the Best of LA: for each class you take, two meals are donated to a person in need through their "Take 1/Give 2 program!"
  • Other Best of LA fitness offerings include the Bar Method in Burbank, Full Circle Pilates in Manhattan Beach and Equilibrium Fitness in Mid-City.

Now, after all that working out, you deserve a Best of LA massage from the newly renovated and beautiful spa at the Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills! Massage therapist Amy Jokinen is here today with client Rachel Scaperotta to demonstrate the perfect gift for yourself or a friend or colleague!


  • The Spa at Beverly Wilshire is offering an amazing Swedish or Deep Tissue massage package for Gilt City members for only $175 – almost half off their regular prices!

And what would a Best of LA list be without beautifying! With a reputation as one of the most exclusive hair salons in the world, we are excited to feature exclusive Gilt City offers from Serge Normant at John Frieda. We are here with expert stylist Lee Rittiner and beautiful model Sheena Graves to show you how to move seamlessly from day to night!
