• What we'll do: Dinner at Rossoblu. Currenly #10 on Jonathan Gold's 101 Best Restaurants. Please Make Note of Pleasure Palate Attendance Policies and our 3 Strikes Rule by clicking here (http://www.meetup.com/pleasurepalate/pages/Attendance_Policies_and_3_Strikes_Rule/) before RSVP-ing to this Event. Cancelling your RSVP within 24 hours for any reason, or not showing up at the event without contacting the Organizer by cell phone ahead of time will result in a strike. 3 Strikes and You're Out! Rossoblu tells the story of the two places chef Steve Samson (Pizzeria Ortica, Sotto) considers home: Los Angeles and Bologna. This is an homage to Samson’s heritage, inspired by childhood memories of summers spent in Bologna and its surrounding region, Emilia Romagna. The menu features handmade pastas, market fresh produce, and an extensive in-house butchery and salumi program. The wine list focuses on unique Italian and Californian varietals, with a sharp focus on Emilia Romagna’s famed Lambrusco. A true family owned and operated restaurant, Rossoblu is managed by Steve's wife, Dina, and their management team whom they have worked with over the last 10+ years. Located in downtown’s City Market South, the site of Los Angeles’s original wholesale farmer’s market, Rossoblu’s open kitchen, marbled serpentine bar, and starry-lit vaulted dining room create a convivial dining environment. The outdoor piazza allows al fresco diners to feel far removed from the nearby city bustle. An intimate downstairs wine cellar offers a glimpse into the chef's pasta workshop and butcher box. The cellar is also available for private dining. The 3 course dineLA dinner is $39 (not including tax, tip, and beverages). There is no mention of any requirement that the whole table order from the dineLA menu or of any restrictions on ordering from the regular menu.

Because we want to burn off some of the calories that we eat, many of our events will have both a dining and physical activity paired together. We do many day trips and weekend adventures that combine the best of both dining and experiencing what LA, SoCal and beyond has to offer in terms of dining options and points of interests.

Pleasure Palate has been around for over 7 years now and in that time we have had over 1,800 events. We offer at least 8 events per month for our members to choose from. This is a very active MeetUp group.

We will focus on various aspects of urban, suburban and rural life, ranging from architectural to cultural, historical to quirky and/or a combination of any of the above to help give you a better appreciation of where we live. Oh, and bring your camera because we encourage all our members to take photos and share their experiences with us on the event pages.

MeetUp charges $180 each year to maintain the Pleasure Palate site. In addition, it costs a lot of money to maintain memberships to historical societies, newspaper and magazine subscriptions - all to get ideas for future events. So we ask for a voluntary $6.00 annual donation to help defray the costs that MeetUp charges.
