Rao's in Hollywood is now accepting resys at 323-962-7267 in advance of the Southern Neapolitan restaurant's September 17 launch.
It will be interesting to see how Angelenos take to Rao's, the 10-table East Harlem eatery which dates back to 1896, equally notorious for its mobster patrons and near to impossible table reservation policy. You gotta know someone to get in. But that Vegas location isn't really a tough ticket, though the Los Angeles table situation remain to be seen. There are, however, 95 seats here in total, divided between indoor and outdoor dining. Eater Young Guns nom Nicole Grimes will head up the LA location by way of Vegas, serving a mix of new Italian plates and classics like meatballs and lemon chicken. Hours of operation to run Monday through Friday from 5 to 10:30 p.m.
