When Pangaea—the earth's greatest rock supergroup—broke up, many fans blamed it on the high-heeled wiles of Europe's inseparable girlfriend, Italia. Discover a sweeter side to the globe's Yoko with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of comely Italian fare and drinks at Enoteca Drago, a lauded Beverly Hills restaurant that is not to be confused with the 1988 Le Mans championship team.
The edible delights at Enoteca radiate rustic authenticity from the comprehensive menu. Antipasti anchor the easy vibes, so dive finger-first into platters of grilled polenta and wild mushrooms ($13), or beef carpaccio with foie gras ($15). The usual suspects done creatively are all present during subsequent courses, including napoletana pizza heavy with anchovies and garlic ($13), seafood and squid ink risotto ($17), veal scallopine ($27), and the meatless burrata salad with mozzarella, green lentils, roasted beets, and asparagus ($13). Complement the edibles with sippables comprising more than 250 bottles of wine from the 20 regions of Italy in glasses, flights, and quartinos.
Almost 20 years ago, chef Celestino Drago planted a meatball seed that quickly sprouted into a humble little restaurant. Today, that restaurant has grown other branches, including its newer Enoteca outgrowth. The restaurant exemplifies casual elegance with its low, curved ceilings and exposed, weathered stonework with plenty of ahoy- and avast-worthy woodwork. The laid-back yet sophisticated ambience swirls around the room, orbiting the massive cherrywood community dining table.
