The dynamic maitre d’ from Valentino, Enoteca Drago, and Il Grano (and a figure about as controversial as Nozawa on the LA board), Stefano Ongaro, just opened a small restaurant, All’Angelo (named for his father) with a small bar and wine rooms.
The fare is high-end Italian, and kitchen talent looks promising: Mirko Parderno in the kitchen has cooked at Valentino and Dolce. The staff is also well seasoned in the city’s top rooms, and friendly to boot.
Make sure to check out the bathrooms, featuring the latest in European designer fixtures, including a square toilet.
