Now, I know you will say to me we can't afford Spago! But I don't care. You must go. Friday lunch. It's so fantastic. The food. The Champagne. The people watching especially! Rich people fascinate me - and there's no better case study that Spago Beverly Hills.
The wine list is really something else. Kevin O. and new somm Chris Miller are still incredibly focused on this impeccable list. And it's not expensive. There are some great deals.
This Scarbolo, Tocai Friulano, 2006. A minerally, semi-tropical, moderate acidity Italian white that's perfect for sipping in the summer on the patio at Spago. $11 a glass. $44 a bottle.
