At West Hollywood's just-opened day spa Kinara, the food is as decadent as the treatments, thanks to co-owners Olga Lorencin, the exuberant Yugoslavian skin-care technician, and restaurateur Christine Splichal. After indulging in a massage, milk bath, or Lorencin's made-to-order facial, you can shop for European imports (slippers, pillows, throws) at the boutique. Or relax in the garden café with wine, tea sandwiches, and chocolate cake created by Splichal's husband, Joachim, chef-owner of Patina. Finally, an L.A. spa that's about more than clean living. 656 N. Robertson Blvd.; 310/657-9188; www.kinaraspa.com; facials from $95; lunch for two $60.
