Went on Tue for a Pre-Dinner.
Liked the Carpaccio, Lobster Gnocchi.
Hated the attitude, and 40- corkage?
Are they crazy? Decent food, won't be returning.
Then went to Spago for a mini Tasting Menu, w/fine burgs, fabu!
Went there a few nights ago and thought the food was really good. Service was good, room was a bit noisy but they have a nice vibe overall. The Veal is great, and so is the chard pasta. Risotto was just OK.
it's i think 114 west channel road in santa monica, right off pch.
and the raviolis here all great. entrees suck, the veal chop milanese is not bad though not very interesting (at least 30 bucks or so) Now that white truffles are starting to show up it might get interesting.
oh, and the service sucks to all hell.
No Kevin, E. Baldi is in Beverly Hill on Canon a block from Spago BH.
How could I have had a PRE DINNER at E. Baldi then been at Spago for a Tasting Menu 5 mins later?
Your thinking of his father Georgio Baldi in W. SM on Channel Rd. If you want the best White Truffles in LA go to Valentino, was just there last Wed, awesome!!

--Russ, no one familiar with your exploits could possibly put this past you!
Thanks for the info on E. Baldi. I'm unclear where this is. Is it really in the Brighton/Canon building, as an earlier poster stated? (My internist is in that building--didn't know there was a restaurant space there.) The usual sources (yellow pages, public health, ABC license) seem to show nothing.
