This mafia-inspired (reservation only) lounge and restaurant (pictured) is described as 'one step above a restaurant but below a club', and owned by the same nightlife impresarios behind some of LA's most celebrated hangouts, including; Bootsy Bellows, Blind Dragon, Delilah and Shorebar in Santa Monica - all of which are bonafide celebrity magnets. The Middle East location opens inside the Emirates Tower.
The intimate, sultry clubby aesthetic encourages table-to-table conversation and a general sense of camaraderie - more reminiscient of a private speakeasy. When it comes to the food expect a modern take of classic Italian dishes and their signature comfort dishes including creatively topped pizzas.
