Hg2 : The Hedonist


The spirit of the Rat Pack permeates this wholly agreeable Italian standout, which was frequented by Sinatra and pals back in their heyday. The current owners – Walter Ebbink and the chef, Brandon Boudet – painstakingly restored its charms a few years back and have enjoyed a seal of approval from local foodies and luminaries. Its draws: Boudet’s reverential takes on Italian classics, a sexy wine list with selections that range from tried-and true to hard-to-find, a genial staff, involved management, and a cool, romantic setting that will make you wonder if you haven’t been transported to New York’s Mulberry Street. Indeed, the white-tile floors and plush red booths are classic Little Italy, though the bar scene is distinctly modern, and the brick patio ensconced by a working herb garden is out of a fairy tale. For a homey slice of fun, do try the $15 three-course, family-style Italian meal supper every Sunday, which offers the house wine, Dago Red, for $10 per bottle. Eastsiders are rejoicing, too. The restaurant’s little bro, Little Dom’s, is open on Hillhurst in Los Feliz.
