An early quick lunch at Drago.

Salvador was our waiter. Interesting to note that he works at Drago at lunch and will be working at Bouchon at night. We will see him Saturday night at the family and friends dinner at Bouchon – “stay tuned”

drago john's favorite

Risotto with sausage and Spaghetti Bottarga – cured tuna roe, garlic, bread crumbs, EVO- this is my husband’s favorite combination and Drago always does a split of the two.

A good lunch with wonderful front of the house staff
