Perino's

michael | Sep 24, 2001 11:13 AM

Any number of accounts advise that fine dining in Los Angeles began with Alexander Perino and his eponymous restaurant. Over time, there have been reports that the business would be revived. There was always a hitch--the location, financing, the liquor license, etc. Reincarnations of older restaurants have always been a dicey proposition in my experience, having in mind such eateries as Rex, Pig n Whistle, Olivia's Place and even McDonald's. Is there any word on Perino's, or will it be simply a footnote in LA culinary history?
