Womens' magazines used to be full of articles about how to take your outfit from day to night. Red lipstick, a few bobby pins, a pair of heels and voila! Cafe Pinot is a day to night restaurant. As the sun sets over the skyscrapers, Cafe Pinot slips on a little lipstick and goes from business casual to special occasion.

Wednesday night LAist accepted an invitation to test out the dineLA dinner menu. The first thing we noticed was the availability of vegetarian options, assuming the risotto is cooked without chicken broth. The menu seems basic upon first glance, but the high quality of the ingredients and careful execution made the simplest-sounding dishes exquisite.
