Another restaurant I really enjoyed this summer in LA was The Ivy. I’ve heard so much about this place – mostly about how often Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox used to come (and probably vent about Brad Pitt back during Mr. and Mrs. Smith). Food wise, though, I had always heard it was “average,” but an absolute LA must, particularly if you have fun stalking celebrities (ahem, ahem).
I, on the other hand, really enjoyed it. First off, sitting on the patio is a definite must. The weather is just too beautiful and the ridiculous amount of gorgeous blooms really sets up the perfect ambiance. I wish we had such a scenic cozy “English Garden” restaurant here in Kuwait…
I don’t remember the name of the dish I had, but it had a creamy pink tomato sauce that I am DETERMINED to copy. My hubby loves penne with pink sauce, and I’ve yet to find a recipe that’s as delicious as this one was. Anyone have a recipe they can share ?
