In the Mood at Angeli Caffe

One of LAist's most awkward/memorable moments in recent history was when we attended a pretty cool food event last spring, and had the chance to meet restaurateur, chef, author, and radio personality Evan Kleiman. Of course we got a little foodie star-struck and, with our mouth was full of tasty bits and bites set out for our enjoyment, we managed to sort of choke out some words of appreciation to the lady who has been an important name in LA food for a couple of decades now. But we didn't rush out to grab a table at her Angeli Caffe until one recent night, when a craving for Italian eats compelled us to pick up the phone and see if we could wrangle ourselves a very last-minute reservation.
