Last weekend the girls and I went on a homeschool field trip to Los Feliz to pick up Jeni’s Splendid ice cream. While driving down Hillhurst, we noticed the beloved neighborhood restaurant Little Dom’s had it’s door open and a menu taped to the window.
The first time I wrote a review of Little Dom’s was in 2010, featured in the Beverly Press.
I pulled up to the curb next to Little Dom’s restaurant, and we put on our masks and gloves before entering the dimly lit boutique grocery store. Inside was a beautiful array of colorful Frecker Farms market vegetables, almost ripe bananas, oat milk and regular, variety of meats, cheese, organic eggs, and freshly baked breads. Everything looked so appealing, that we just started grabbing items, even though they weren’t on our shopping list.
Our best purchases were a container of freshly made yogurt, and a loaf of artisan bread covered with sesame seeds, and a jar of strawberry and rhubarb jam. Even though I have been making bread #saferathome, my breads don’t come close to the textures and flavors of Little Dom’s. We enjoy the bread and jam for a mid-day snack, and the next morning for breakfast and sliced for lunch sandwiches. When we finished the last slice with soup for dinner, we vowed to go back and purchase another loaf.
Pick up Little Dom’s daily three-course menu to go for $25 or Little Dom’s at-home pizza making kit for two, which includes two pizza doughs, a ball of mozzarella and house-made tomato sauce for $20. Add optional toppings like kalamata olives, pepperoni and house-made fennel sausage or a bottle of wine.
Do you have an upcoming pandemic celebration? Birthday, anniversary or just why not? Order a Celebration Dinner for one or two people starting at $40, and includes an appetizer, entree (such as Spaghetti Cacio y Pepe) and a cold chocolate cake with salted caramel & mascarpone whipped cream. Add additional entrees or a bottle of wine to make this extra special.
