that I am not here in lovely Southern California with all it's associated gastronomic charm, but in Italy (or perhaps France). It is lunchtime. Instead of the "express" lunch so many in this city are forced to endure due to a time clock, I want a leisurely, three hour affair. Of course, it should go without saying that wine is a requirement!
Any suggestions ranging from as far east as Pasadena and as far west to the coast (Malibu/Santa Monica)? Thanks in Advance!
