Bestia

This past Sunday, my friend Taylor and I went to Bestia, an Italian restaurant that has been recommended to me time and time again. Bestia is located in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles. I can’t seem to get enough of that area!

The restaurant can be a bit hard to find, as it’s tucked away in an alley.

Yes, an alley.

I loved the modern decor of the restaurant.

Taylor and I chose three small and one large plates to share. Our first dish was the Puntarella and Endive Salad, with persimmons, pomegranate, mint, pecorino pientino, and chili lemon vinaigrette. The flavors were interesting, but I didn’t love this salad.

Our second dish was the Pan-Fried Ciccioli, with pickled fennel, quince, crème fraiche, pea tendrils, and fennel pollen. It was amazing!

For our third small plate, we chose the Roasted Marrow Bone, with spinach gnocchetti, crispy breadcrumbs, and aged balsamic. It was delicious and my favorite dish of the night.

For our main course, we ordered the Slow Roasted Lamb Neck with pea tendrils, pickled shallots, marcona almonds, pickled fennel, and salsa verde. Neither of us had had lamb neck before, and we both loved it.

It was such a beautiful dish!

For dessert, we ordered the Valrhona Fair Trade Bittersweet Chocolate Budino Tart with salted caramel, cacao crust, olive oil, and sea salt.

I can see why so many people rave about Bestia. The food and ambiance are fantastic!
