Amoeba Music, LA
The store is a monument to vinyl. The L.A branch of the Berkeley-based store, Amoeba carries 250,000 titles. Shopping here is as much about touch and sight as it is about hearing - placing your fingers on CD's and record albums, responding viscerally to seducting cover art.
Tune in on Wednesdays at 10PM ET for Top Chef: Boston, the 12th season of Bravo's Emmy-Award winning, hit reality series.
