Rao’s just opened in Hollywood! When Paul told us about it, I called for a reservation ASAP.

It’s not as difficult to get a table here as it is in NYC, and since the outside room is a replica of the one in East Harlem, it’s the next best thing to dining at the original???

We were seated outside, which is pretty, but honestly…

…the inside is where it’s at.

So we moved.

No menu online yet – I uploaded one for you. Our server Jason (also from Jersey!) pulled up a chair and helped us navigate the vegetarian options.

The bread is divine – made daily by a local French baker. I wonder what the ones in NY/Vegas are like?

Ate two plates that looked like this – one straight up, and the other to sop up all the sauce…

…served table-side by Jersey Jason. We got the penne with marinara…

…and grilled vegetables.

For dessert, house-made sorbet – Blackberry Cabernet was one of the three flavors.

Rao’s is very close to us (up the street from Grub) so we’ll definitely be back, though next time I’ll have to bring some carnivores along to share the family-sized meat dishes.
