We need a place for a casual moderate priced meal in Echo Park on Friday Night. Italian or French maybe.
If you have anythoughts please share

    How moderate? How close to Echo Park?

    My first thoughts would be, I think, that Beaujolais (really eagle Rock) Aroma (Silverlake/Echo Park) and Cappricio (Los Feliz/Vermont) fill the bill, more or less. But you KNOW about them. Haven't been to Michaelangelo in close to a decade. If you're looking to be REALLY bargain-minded, there's always Taix...

    I don't know of anything much newer....

      It the weather was better, (only the patio will do) I would say maybe Cliff's Edge, but the price point might not suit.

      Friends don't let friends dine at Taix' (g)

        Aw, on a cold, rainy day, sitting by the fire in the lounge at Taix with some of their soup and a cocktail isn't half bad...

        Cliffs Edge is nice. I also love Il Capriccio on Vermont. Very reasonably priced and you bring your own wine. No corkage fee.

        Also, Dusty's on Sunset in Silverlake. Yummy French.

        Michaelangelo's is still pretty good and not terribly expensive.

        We love Blairs, but that might be too expensive for your needs.

        Good luck!

          I love Michaelangelos for their radicchio ravioli and their mushroom gnocci.

            Their pizza's good too, and there's not a sweeter staff/owners anywhere.
