DineLA: DRAGO CENTRO

by Melissa October. 14, 2009 850 views

DineLA Restaurant Week [discoverlosangeles.com] continues this week. Third stop on the agenda was Drago Centro [dragocentro.com]. Gorgeous, even on a rainy day.

My first course, Carrot Soup with Pancetta and cream. The orange color was gorgeous, the taste was super fresh. I did have to send it back because it was too cold but when they got it right, it was spot on.

Linda's first course: Smoked Salmon, Cauliflower Panna Cotta, Fennel. Unbelievably good quality here, beautiful texture and flavors. For our main meals, we both had Garganelli with Veal Bolognese, which I forgot to photograph. I thought it was good but not outstanding.

On to dessert - no misses here. This was the Mascarpone Semifreddo, Strawberries,

#2 - Chocolate Coffee Cake, Vanilla Cream.

We loved the restaurant, it's gorgeous. It was packed and very busy.

Also, a lovely touch with the doggie bags. Linda didn't finish her pasta and asked to take it home, so when they took the food away, they gave her a claim check to pick up her leftovers on the way out instead of having to sit with the bag while we finished the meal.
