Need a restaurant recommendation-Los Feliz
I live on the Westside and will be near Vermont and Melrose Thursday. I always hear about great restaurants near this part of town. I'm a total foodie and need help to decide where to go. I never get to this part of town, so if you had to suggest "the one" restaurant, where would you go? All ideas welcome!!!!!
I tried to like Little Dom's, but after a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs that tasted exactly like chef boyardees (including the mushiness of the noodles and flavorlessness of the meat) I think I won't ever give it another shot. Anyway, I'd rather go to mozza for pizza.
What is disappointing to me is that the servers don't know how or from whom the raw ingredients (like beef) are sourced. But most restaurants are like that.
A dozen of us had dinner at Little Dom's on May 30. Service was superb, food was extraordinary, atmosphere was Squaresville at its best, price was way under $50/person plus alcohol.
What we ate (dinner arranged by a wonderful friend):

Baked Ricotta and Biellese Soppresatta

Pappardelle with Shrimp
*Sides to Share*
*Desserts to Share*
Torta Della Nonna
We left the restaurant completely stuffed and happy.
Just went to Barbrix and had an excellent dinner. Great wines at very reasonable prices too. Blairs is also very good. I hear good things about Cafe Stella as well. All three of these places are technically in Silverlake, but not too far from Los Feliz.
If you want to stay in proper Los Feliz, I would recommend Farfalla for some great pasta dishes.
Carousel in Hollywood - very close to Los Feliz is no frills - totally awesome lebanese food...
cobra and matadors has an outpost on Hollywood Blvd..I like the one near the grove....
barbrix is getting good buzz...
if you go to silverlake, blair's is great imo.
If you like Italian, I've been very happy with the meals I've had at Il Capricio.
Il Capriccio On Vermont
1757 N Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027
Yuca's on Hillhurst for cochinita pibil burritos
Zanzabelle in Silverlake for a fixed price Friday or Saturday dinner.
Il Cappriccio's on Vermont for a quiet Italian dinner with homemade squid ink pasta.
The Alcove for lunch, dessert and coffee.
