I visited Cecconi in West Hollywood two Sundays in a row. Last Sunday was Rhoda's b-day party...private room, decorated with flowers and candy...divine menu. This past Sunday a much smaller group celebrated Lori's B-Day in the main dining room. Both meals were lovely. The service was good. The place is beautiful and there's no valet parking fee on the weekends! Woo Hoo!

Bar Area @ Cecconi's
Cecconi is on Melrose and Robertson in the former Morton's and Trump's space. It's a spacious restaurant, all marble and velvet, with a big patio and a lovely atmosphere. The food is excellent.

Rhoda, celebrating!

At Rhoda's party we had our choice of Burrata with cherry tomatoes or Chopped Vegie Salad for an appetizer. For the main course we had a gorgeous hunk o' Salmon w/ asparagus or Butternut Squash Tortellini.

On Sunday for Lori's b-day, Lori and Carol each had a salad, Beth had the Fritatta and I had Eggs Benedict. All were delicious. We shared two desserts: A mountain of chopped fruit and honey w/Grapefruit Sorbet and a fresh Apple Tarte with Vanilla Bean Ice-cream.

Beth brought out her IPhone with the "Hipstamatic" photo application and took some really cool filtered photos (see below).

I will definitely return to Cecconi.

I went to Ceconni's on the 14th for brunch. The menu is good and quite reasonable with the exception of the drinks that are a bit steep. I had the fritatta and fruit salad and we shared the Burrata and cherry tomatoes. The desserts sure look delicious. Love all the photos.

Hah! Too bad I missed you there, Jo Anne! Yes, I think it's quite reasonable for brunch too. Also, I didn't get that "too cool for the room" WeHo vibe here. Both times were enjoyable experiences.

Well we sure did have fun, didn't we! I would definitely go back - nice vibe. I also loved our table location.

Wow. Reasonably priced and no "Melrose" attitude? I may have to venture out of my comfort zone, b/c EVERYTHING looks great!

Apparently Cecconi's is on the party circuit. Everything looks and sounds very nice. Will have to check it out.
