How to Make the Perfect Cup of Italian Coffee

Unpacking the history, allure, and ways to use the humble Moka pot.

One of the best-kept secrets in Los Angeles is Todd Rosenthal, the guy you need to know for all things car-related. If you want to buy a new set of wheels, Rosenthal will make the deal for you, and, for an hourly retainer—paid by in-the-know executives like the studio head who introduced me to him—he'll handle your purchase ad infinitum, no matter what's involved. One client even had Rosenthal commission a custom-made purple leather interior for his purple Porsche. Rosenthal can also finesse any other auto dilemma. When you need to renew your license, he'll work his voodoo to spare you the four-hour wait in line. And if you're worried about being identified by your tags (one of the paparazzi's favorite tip-offs), he will help you register your vehicle under a pseudonym—a common trick in this town. $ Services, $70–$250 per hour.
