Chi SPACCA [Los Angeles]

MEAT. Hot, glistening, enormous MEAT.

A ton of salumi. Our server informed us that there is a literal ton of smoked and cured meats hanging behind the kitchen.

I mean, you have to respect anyone who has whipped lard on a menu in LA.

Plus, they have found a way to combine my love of pot pie, boeuf bourguignon, and bone marrow all in the same dish, except even more decadent than that description makes it sound.

It’s a small restaurant, so if you find it tough to nab a reservation, try justwalking in. The seats that surround the open kitchen are exclusively for walk-ins and give you the best view of the hot meaty action.

  1. Oh my. Officially kicking myself that I did not know about this place and THAT whipped lard when I was living in LA.

    Holy cow (pun intended)! This place looks absolutely amazing. I thought the first picture really captured the essence of this restaurant and then I saw that pot pie! *swoon*
