If you're going to eat your way around L.A., who better to do it with than Curtis Stone?

The ladies were squired about town for their second special Cali show by the TODAY pal and "Top Chef Masters" star. They hopped in his fly convertible to sample a cornucopia of local favorites, or as Hoda put it, hit "the hottest restaurants with one of the hottest guys we know." They mayyyyyy have a tiny crush on him.


They snacked on sandwiches at Soda Pop, sushi at Katsu-ya, and enjoyed a boatload of wine at legendary Italian spot Dan Tana's. Then, for the big finish, Curtis took them out for tacos, which LA does right.


"I want to watch how you bite it," sighed Hoda as Curtis tore in.

"What are we eating? Fish?" wondered KLG.

"The food's great, and it's super fresh," said Curtis nervously.

So are you, Curtis. So are you.
