Hatfield’s Restaurant from “Chef”

Apr 21st, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s location is a bit of a bummer, I’m afraid.  Ever since seeing the movie Chef (one of my favorites of 2014), I was itching to stalk Hatfield’s restaurant, which appeared quite extensively throughout the flick.  So when I discovered that it had recently closed, I was devastated.  But I ventured on over to see the exterior of it in person, nonetheless, while I was in L.A. a few weeks ago.

Hatfield’s restaurant was established by Karen and Quinn Hatfield in 2006.  The fine dining eatery […]

Big Red Sun from “Chef”

Jan 12th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Spoiler alert!  If you have not yet seen Chef (and if not, what’s the hold up?  I told y’all on Friday that it was one of my favorite movies of 2014!), you might not want to read today’s post as I will definitely be spoiling the ending.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you!  Anyhow, at the conclusion of Chef, Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) is approached by his food critic nemesis, Ramsey Michel (Oliver Platt), who informs him that he would like to financially back him […]

Inez’s House from “Chef”

Jan 9th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My favorite movie of 2014 was, hands down, The Other Woman.  Running a close second was Chef, which I am guessing many of you have not heard of.  Sadly, it was a bit of a sleeper.  Take my word for it, though, the flick is fabulous.  As are its locations!  But more on that in a minute.  The Grim Cheaper and I first heard about Chef thanks to Carson Daly who talked about it on his morning radio show on 97.1 FM a couple of […]

The “Swingers” Apartment Building

Jan 19th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I stalked quite a few months back, but for whatever reason have yet to blog about is the Los Feliz apartment building where Mike (aka Jon Favreau) lived in the 1996 comedy Swingers.  I had actually been wanting to stalk this location for quite some time, ever since reading on the IMDB trivia page for Swingers that Jon Favreau had lived there while writing the screenplay for the movie and during the actual filming.  IMDB even had the address of the building […]

The 101 Coffee Shop from “Swingers”

Nov 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, Movie Locations

One location that I have wanted to stalk ever since moving to Los Angeles over a decade ago, but didn’t because there were numerous erroneous reports floating around online which stated that the place had since closed down, was the 101 Coffee Shop which appeared in the 1996 movie Swingers.  It wasn’t until Mike, from MovieShotsLA, pointed out the restaurant to me while driving by it after we finished our tour of Paramount Studios back in September that I realized the location was, indeed, still open […]

Jaime Pressly’s I Love You, Man House

Sep 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few months back, I asked fellow stalker Owen for some help in tracking down all of the filming locations from fave movie I Love You, Man.  The spot I was most interested in stalking was the charming little house belonging to Denise (aka Jaime Pressly) and her brutish husband Barry (aka Jon Favreau) in the flick. Ever since seeing the movie this past March, I have been absolutely obsessed with that house.  It is just so darn cute!  And I was one hundred percent […]
