Following up on our popular Best Bets on the Jersey Shore series during Breeders' Cup week,
TDN subscribers now regularly recommend dining and shopping options to our out-of-town readers.
IL PICCOLINO TRATTORIA (Los Angeles, CA - Dining)
350 North Robertson Blvd., West Hollywood, CA
Phone: (310) 659-2220
Type: A cozy little spot for lunch and dinner with excellent service
Il Piccolino would be our first choice. It is owned in partnership by the brilliant and renowned host Eddie Kerkhofs (of Le Dome fame for over 20 years) and the equally charming Sylvio Demori (formerly of Mimosa). Together they created Il Piccolino, a cozy little spot for both lunch and dinner, where hand-picked waiters/resses provide excellent service in a comfortable setting, either inside or on the covered terrace. Some of their specialties include an incredible Steak Florentine, old Le Dome favourites such as Lamb Stew and Pasta Caviar, Giant Langoustines and when in season Joe's Stone crabs. Reservations suggested, as it is a hotspot!
