Had a lunch meeting in Silver Lake yesterday –
Been wanting to check out Willie Garson (one of the owners) last year…
…made some Open Table reservations for 3 – we were seated in a cozy indoor booth by the bar. Reminded me of NYC!
If the name’s familiar, it’s probably because this spot is a The Food Network…
…we skipped breakfast (FYI – it’s offered all day) and ordered off the lunch menu instead:
Fontina and Roasted Tomato Panino
Hot Soppresatta and Provolone Panino with sweet pickled peppers and EVOO
Raw Mixed Kale with grilled heirloom carrots and balsamic vinegar (here’s the recipe!)
I had a taste of everything along with my soup…
…Italian wedding! Lotsa meatballs and greens going on in this bowl.
Wound up polishing off a few more pieces of panini too – just because they were sitting there, screaming “Eat Me.”
Really loved this restaurant – the food was great, and the vibe was perfect. Since this was a business meeting, the check was split – I used my $100 credit giveaway!)
Lunch ended late in the afternoon. Never really got an appetite for dinner, so I wound up staying in, ate half a melon, and hung out with this little Dom instead:
