Thank you all for the suggestions; I'm looking into each and will follow up shortly! It's much appreciated!
Last question: What are your thoughts towards Madeo?
It's been on my list of places to try for years and for whatever reason, it's never happened yet. I've read some favorable comments in posts here and there... mains seem to fall in the $30-50 price range and starters seem best suited for sharing, which I like. The atmosphere looks to be dark, classic, L.A.; not what I originally emphasized, but a bonus nonetheless, in my book.
I recognize it's an unfair comparison (North Italy vs South Italy) but strictly in terms of dexterity in the kitchen, does the food stack up to Chi Spacca, or is it not even in the same league?
