Ok, deluxe diners it's high time we checked out LA's hottest Italian restaurant, Bestia. Through some kind of foodie miracle I've managed to reserve a table for 6 at the place foodies all over the city are talking about!
Zagat rates Bestia:
Food-25, Decor-23, Service-23 with an average cost of $59.
Husband-and-wife team Ori Menashe (ex Angelini Osteria) and Genevieve Gergis "are a force to be reckoned with" at this "new fave" in Downtown's Arts District, a "hot" destination for "on-point" "rustic Italian" fare from an open kitchen; "urban-trendy" digs and "cool" servers are more reasons it's "so crowded" and "deafening" – "not that you need to talk with food like this!"; P.S. "reservations are difficult."
Bestia is so in demand that they require 48 hours notice of cancelation or they'll hit my credit card. So...
A $20 deposit holds your spot and will be refunded if you cancel at least 48 HOURS in advance. Canceling on the same day as the Meetup will be considered the same as a no show and will remove you from the group. Forfeited deposits will be donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
