I’m just very excited to see the word Cicchetti in LA. And that space has been a long time favorite.
the Americana location is pretty good for what it is - significantly better than I expected.
sorry? this is a chain?
There are a bunch of locations - by USC, at the mall in Glendale, Playa Del Rey. The food is fine but not all that interesting or exciting. It’s extremely all over the place - pizza, tacos, lamb kebabs. The space is absolutely beautiful, though.
IMO you go to Bacari to get drunk at a “fun” place with a full cocktail bar. The fact that the food is better than average for this type of establishment is a bonus. Menu is good when you have groups.
It’s the kind of place you take your coworkers after a team building event.
Nemroz, I predict you’ll hate it. lol
Since i’m thinking about a place to host my birthday, this might actually fit the bill perfectly. Just need ok food, drinks and a fun cozy environment where we can bring kids. Checking a lot of boxes! And we can walk. I definitely know how to turn my food snob mode off.
I go to Americana more often than I’d like (kids love it) and have always avoided Bacardi cause I just assumed it sucked. I may try it now.
All, the simple steps to enjoy Bacari:
- Set expectations appropriately
- Bring friends
- Get drunk
- Eat food to soak up alcohol
- Order more drinks
