It’s a charmed lfe. Living the luxurious life of a lady that lunches.
In actuality I was a juror that needed lunch… Totally unlucky in jury duty, incredibly lucky during restaurant week, and Drago Centro is a walkable distance from the courthouse
Drago Centro is flawlessly classy. Moonlighting as a real housewife of the OC, I noticed tons of: power lunches, dry martinis, Hermes Birkins, and of course spring- winter couples about. The décor is beautiful and tasteful, perfect for a first date.
The venison carpaccio was superb and not gamey. The seasonings were plentiful but did not overwhelm the flavor of the meat, yet provided enough kick to enhance the flavor of the venison. Amazing.
The braised short ribs were solid. The meat was neither dry nor tough (ribs were bone out).
My favorite part of the meal was the panna cotta. The citrus and basil infused sauce cleansed my palate so I truly able to enjoy the rich creaminess of the panna cotta.
Service was immaculate, Lorelei was fabulous. I had plates placed before me, without my noticing. I was eyeballing the meat and cheese menu wondering where my food was and bam! Non obtrusive and definitely attentive service. I was in and out of Drago in about hour. No contempt of court here.
It’s a charmed life.
