#090 – LUIGI al TEATRO | Friday Forkisode

  • November 16, 2018

Almost hidden behind a sneaky doorway on 2nd St. in Santa Monica, hungry and curious walkers by are just a few steps away from LUIGI al TEATRO, a secret piece of heaven nestled near Main St. High ceilings, wall frescos of theater actors, and custom furniture direct the diner towards the star of the show: the open kitchen.

If you’re lucky, you might even get a smile and a nod from Michelin Star Chef Luigi Fineo (and if you’re like me, you might blush).

I went with a group for brunch and we ordered every dish on the menu – and I would eat every single one again! So instead of sharing my order with you, I’m going to highlight a few of my absolute favorites.



Debi’s favorite dishes:

  • Aperol Venetian Spritz (bottomless)
  • Toast with fig jam, ricotta, and fried rosemary
  • Sea urchin omelette with crème fraîche and chive
  • Bucatini with a soft poached egg and prosciutto black pepper
  • Budino (chocolate, crème fraîche, and maldon salt)
