Bestia. It is seemingly simple, an unadorned bowl of hand-made pasta cooked beautifully al dente so it has some chew and depth, lumps of pretty pink pork sausage and a buttery sauce flecked with real black truffles. But you know a lot of work went into each component. It is so comforting, so perfect, and exactly what you want on a cold winter night in LA (or anywhere for that matter).
Once again, we hit up a place right after the LAT review, and in true fashion, there was a line out front even before the doors open, the bar was full immediately, and we thought we wouldn't be able to get a table. Lucky for us and our taste buds, we did.
