La Bistecca?

RicRios Jun 8, 2009 11:31 AM

According to the Millennium Biltmore website, "La Bistecca opens Thursday, May 28, 2009 and will be open Wednesdays - Saturdays from 6:00pm - 10:00pm".

That means it's out of the question for Sunday's dinner after La Traviata.
Anyways, any comments anybody ?

        I finally went one day.
        Weird feeling, single busy table in the magnificent lobby, everybody walking by looking at you. Ever played the role of the fish in the fish bowl?
        Clueless waiter.
        Food didn't register too well in my RAM.
        Steak, unremarkable, and some salad.
        Similar for the rest of my party of 6.
        Nobody said anything re. coming back.

          Thanks Ric. The lobby idea was a turn-off to me, too. I was wondering why they'd serve caponata AND another sauce with a good steak! Going to Church and State instead. A bit far from the Ahmanson, but we'll make it!
