THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Dolce Enoteca e Ristorante Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED The Dodd Mitchell-designed restaurant promotes itself as a bastion of Italian peasant cuisine, but it is not a dining spot for the common folk. With over a dozen celebrity investors, (including about half the cast of “That '70s Show”), the door to the private dining room is known to be one of the best spots for stargazing in LA. But Dolce is not a place merely to be seen, this is a restaurant that draws foodies for the cuisine. Seafood dishes are particularly strong, including the tuna tartare, grilled cuttlefish and specials like Pacific King salmon. Other favorites are from the page of fresh pastas. In addition to the traditional menu of appetizers and entrées, an enoteca menu offers Italian-style tapas at affordable prices. The forty-odd page wine list is a lesson in viticultural geography, with maps to illustrate the showcased regions. Filled with Italian heavies, the list even boasts Gaja by the glass. Desserts can be as difficult to choose as the wine. Will it be the tiramisu or the chocolate torte, a dense, bittersweet chocolate cake with a sweet, melted center?
