LAist often scans Gayot.com for LA restaurant news. We found the following item after sifting through all the (barely) rewritten press releases:
Alto Palato, the landmark Italian restaurant on La Cienega, is closing its doors on December 3 after more than 10 years in business. Owner Danilo Terribili is sad about the departure, but it will give him more time to spend on his Spark Woodfire Cooking restaurants. From November 7 until then, chef Freddie Escobar is offering the ten best dishes of the last ten years (one from each year) as à la carte menu items and as part of a tasting menu. Also, all the wine will be 50 percent off.
Alto Palato, 755 N. La Cienega Boulevard, West Hollywood, (310) 657-9271.
We recommend taking advantage of such a healthy price reduction by gathering a group of friends to enjoy all that Alto Palto's wine cellar has to offer.
