One of our favorite lunch places is Drago in Santa Monica.
We always start with Arancine as an amuse.
Gooey and gorgeous inside of the Arancine
Mozza’s Arancine – little balls of nothing
BYO White Wine
Grilled Shrimp with Citrus Vinaigrette, Mandarin Orange, Fennel and Frisee – delicious
BYO Red Wine
Spaghetti al Cartoccio “Seafood Spaghetti, light Garlic-Tomato Sauce -this dish can be a disaster if the seafood is overcooked – not at Drago – perfect mussels, excellent shrimp, tender scallops and squid
On the left Fettuccine alla Bolognese and on the right Risotto with Sausage – my husband always asks for a split order and they are more than accomodating.
Cheese to finish the red wine
A perfect lunch.
