POSTO GIUSTO  (means “the right place” in Italian)
1948 Colorado Blvd, LA 90041 – in Eagle Rock
Open everyday for dinner at 5:30pm
The latest restaurant to open in Eagle Rock is a super cool space – Marshall Blair (from Blairs restaurant in Silverlake on Rowena) has taken over the former Halong Bay Vietnamese space, and totally recreated it with high ceilings and thick wood beams, cement floor, brick walls, hanging bamboo lampshades and wonderful huge windows that open to let the outside in. Not only did Blair oversee the reconstruction himself, he also made all the ceramic dish-ware used to serve the food.
The place seats roughly fifty inside with an extra 16 seats coming for an outdoor sidewalk dining experience. Heading up the food is Chef Christopher Washburn (also head chef at Blairs restaurant). On the menu are a variety of Italian favorites like puttanesca (the best I’ve ever had), the Gnocchetti with spicy pork sausage, meatballs and polenta, rappini –  and a tiramisu that is heavenly. Overall the food is spicy, creamy, fragrant, peppery, and extremely flavorful. Every dish I tried was delicious . Of course, the wines served are incredible, too. The place is relaxed with cool staff adding to the friendly vibe. Give Posto Giusto a try, you won’t be disappointed.
