From the same lovely people who brought you Grilled Cheese Sandwich Thursdays, Campanile is offering a lovely way to avoid rush-hour on a Friday: Friday Night Flights, wine and food pairings hand-selected by the restaurant’s esteemed wine director Jay Perrin and executive chef Mark Peel. The menu changes every week and for $38 per person you get three small three-course menus of Peel’s creations accompanied by wine from one of the best wine lists in L.A.
It’s something to do after work, a little more sophisticated than hoisting beers and gobbling buffalo chicken wings. It’s also a great way to wait out the traffic.
