Description

LA Weekly's Description

Fish, man — raw fish — from Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market and jetted right to you, careful slabs of yellowtail, tuna, fluke, sprinkled with salt and drizzled with olive oil, Italian sashimi on a pretty glass plate. Il Grano’s crudo, Italian sashimi, hasn’t the pleasure in it that you’ll find at, say, David Pasternack’s Esca in midtown Manhattan — there isn’t the pinpoint marination, the balance of flavors, the grind of salt matched exactly to the texture of each fish — but the sourcing is careful and the presentation is true, and when you try Sal Marino’s squid ink pasta with sea urchin (also an Esca dish), the particular brininess of the uni rings clear.

    Not bad for an upscale Italian restaurant. I enjoyed the Squid Ink Pasta that I got here for lunch. The ambiance is lovely and the staff are attentive. I'd try to come for dinner, it may be a more enjoyable experience!

    Table side Branzino is amazing! But I really come for Tomato Wednesday's.

  • heather w. on 08/01/12

    Go on a Wednesday in July and August - Tomato Weds where they use selections form 41 different types of heirloom tomato to prepare dishes.
