There’s no shortage of places to eat — and eat well — in L.A.
There is a shortage, however, of places to eat where you can actually hear yourself think.
Not to mention your date, if you’re into the whole talk-to-your-date thing.
For that — not to mention lipsmacking farm-to-gullet grub — pay a visit to Adoteca, an intimate little bistro tucked away on the walkable stretch of San Vicente in Brentwood.
It’s from the Ado guys. They’re serving savory Italian, Parma-style.
It takes skill to make a delicate insalata of watercress and hearts of palm this delicious.
The tagliatelle noodles — coated in a savory quail ragu and resting on a taligio fondue — are made from beets. Light. Sweet. Also delicious.
The intimate room is lit by candlesticks and warmed by a wall of reclaimed wood. Plus a wine list of choice Italian vintages, including a $1,150 bottle of Sassicaia 1997.
Sounds rich, but it’s worth a taste.
