Rating: Food was excellent
Despite the fact that Brentwood is already full of Italians, I was excited to hear that Jon & Vinny’s was opening on San Vicente as I’d been meaning to go and never make it out to Fairfax for someplace so casual.
Clean looking frontage.
And similar interior. Sometime by myself I’ll have to try the bar. Today I was meeting an old friend for lunch — but it was passover AND both of us are eating low carb, so despite the killer looking pastas and pizza we only ordered veggies and meat balls!
The breakfast and lunch menus.
Marinara braised meatballs, ricotta, garlic bread. These were really good.
Gem lettuce, calabrian chili dressng, parmesan, bread crumbs. Good and zesty/mildly spicy caesar clone.
Tuna brentwood, tuna conserva, heirloom tomato, gem lettuce.
Grilled broccolini, golden raisin, almond, chili vinaigrette. The chili etc made these excellent for veggies.
Grilled asparagus, lemon, parmesan. Same with the asparagus.
What I had was all very well prepared, giving me the sense that this is a good kitchen. Very bright flavors and on point. I also kept seeing all these incredible looking pastas and pizzas. When I’m either off my diet or being bad I will definitely have to come back. Sigh. It’s very convenient, being on the close side of Brentwood and only 10-15 minutes from my house.
