An Angeleno’s ode to Bologna, Rossoblu is a massive downtown restaurant inspired by Chef Steve Samson’s memories growing up in California and visiting his grandparents in Emilia Romagna. The menu boasts excellent handmade pastas and an extensive in-house butchery and salumi program, alongside a wine list focused on family-owned grower wineries. With concrete floors and utilitarian tableware, the industrial vaulted dining room is fairly minimal, save for the arte povera inspired mural by Cyrcle that dominates the space. An intimate wine cellar downstairs with its own dedicated entrance offers private dining for up to 26 guests, while larger parties can enjoy outdoor dining with heaters in the mezzanine and garden.
