My Scoop on Cecconi's

Cecconi's is one of the most buzzed-about restaurants in Los Angeles these days thanks to its recent opening, the fact that several B-list celebrities have already eaten there, and its membership in the Soho House Group of properties.

Upon calling to request a review tasting, I was promptly told that they are not officially having press in to the restaurant yet, which only whetted my appetite (ah, puns!) further to try the menu. Thankfully I found satiation when my new friend Jim suggested we get lunch there and I got to be as judgmental as I wanted while wearing the untainted smugness of a civilian foodie.

I'd love to hear others' opinions on the place, but in the meantime, here's mine!
