The Dresden Strikes Again

You're The Worst - A restaurant where the cute/cubby character continues to eat a monstrous amount of food.

Once again The Dresden Restaurant pops up in a TV show, but unlike in Mad Men or Spoils of Babylon, You're The Worst isn't really taking advantage of the mid-century architecture.  Kind of a waisted opportunity.  

I think they were more concerned with finding a booth by a kitchen so a character can storm off into the kitchen when they try to make a big exit.  

Mad Men at the Dresden

Once again, The Dresden, a restaurant in Los Felize (Los Angeles), pops up in a TV show.  I posted about this location when it appeared in The Spoils of Babylon, and now Mad Men.  The mid-century room is stunning, although the food was pretty lack luster.

And I am so excited that this season of Mad Men spends more time in Los Angeles!

The Spoils of the Dresden

I just watched the first two episodes of The Spoils of Babylon, a faux 70's mini serious, and found it strangely captivating.  Will Ferrell plays Eric Jonrosh, writer/director/narcassist, and presents each episode of his "masterpiece".

I noticed they filmed this scene at The Dresden, which has a beautiful mid-century dining room from 1964 (didn't have a great food experience though).   The picture doesn't do it justice.   The slated wood dividers make the banquettes feel intimate, but also highlight the height of the ceiling.  So elegant.
