Plywood Update: New Deets on Silver Lake's Domenico

New, 4 comments

A lot of eyes have been on the former Michelangelo space on Silver Lake Boulevard since the restaurant picked up and opened on Rowena—there were rumors as to who or what would move in, and whether the landlord would be involved for a good portion of last year. Not too long ago we noticed signage for a place called Domenico Ristorante, and now we finally have a bit more info. Domenico Frasca, the owner, grew up in Geneva and Pisa, Italy, and worked at the former Chalet Gourmet, Porta Via, and Drago; the chef is Michael Young, who did some time in Valentino's and La Botte's kitchens. Frasca tells us Domenico will be a classic neighborhood Italian bistro—about 20 seats inside, 20 out, and a modern look with green, white and grey accents; what he calls "elegant, young, cool." The menu will be "traditional Italian food with a twist," with a focus on organic and/or seasonal ingredients, sustainably farmed meats, and handmade pastas. The most expensive entrée will be priced around $29. The optimistic goal is to open by the first week of February, but it all depends on final inspections. For fun, there's an introductory video to Frasca on the restaurant's website.
