Tom Colicchio’s Craft is open in Century City, and brekkie_fan declares it’s well worth the round trip from Orange County.
Both the Los Angeles and New York Crafts get their produce from Santa Monica, and a crispy-fresh little gem salad with cipollini onions wrapped in bacon shows it hasn’t had to travel far. Roast quail is succulent and tasty; spaghetti alla chitarra is crazy fresh.
For dessert, take your pick from the glazed and fluffy signature doughnuts, a rich chocolate soufflé, and assorted gelatos. There’s also a cheese plate.
While the NY outpost is dark and cozy, Century City is light and airy. It’s open for dinner only for now, with patio dining on the horizon and lunch service come August.
