I have been wanting to dine at Little Dom’s for some time now, especially since I was such a fan of Dominick’s, which closed earlier this year. Little Dom’s is a Los Feliz neighborhood gem and reminiscent of a New York corner restaurant and bar. There is booth seating in the bar and tables in the dining room as well as outside – great for people watching.
The cocktails and wine list have a fun twist from traditional menus with Dominick’s 1948 with Medley Bros. 100 Proof Whiskey, Carpano Antica, Art in the Age Root Liqueur, and Everclear Rinse, Dash of Moonshine Bitters. The wines list is assorted varietals from different regions all over the world.
As for the menu, eclectic Italian-American fare with a warm vibe. The Grilled Artichoke was nicely prepared with a slight char and a spoonful of herb vinaigrette on top, served on a plate of melted butter with grilled lemon.
The Tomahawk Pork Chop was roasted in the oven to a juicy medium and sliced off the bone and served over Braised Collard Greens. A sprinkling of cayenne pepper over the chop, added a hint of spice that was nice with the pork.
The pasta was outstanding – a Mustard Green Lasagnette with Alligator & Wild Boar Bolognese. The flavors were rustic and homey and paired nicely with the herbaceous pasta. This pasta dish is definitely worth having again!
Little Dom’s is open daily serving breakfast, lunch & dinner as well as brunch on the weekends. They have nightly dinner specials and a special Monday Night Supper. Little Dom’s is great before a concert at The Greek Theatre or after exploring Griffith Park.
