After an incredible 46-year run Piero Selvaggio’s trendsetting will serve its last dinner on New Year’s Eve. Valentino Ristorante
Valentino is one of the pioneers of modern Italian food in Los Angeles. Valentino also is properly credited with introducing premium Italian wines as part of a deep cellar along with polished, unfussy wine service.
Many talented chefs with very successful restaurants of their own polished their skills earlier in their careers in the Valentino kitchen. This includes
James Beard Award-winning Chef Luciano Pellegrini, Angelo Auriana ( Factory Kitchen) and Steve Samson ( Rossoblu and Sotto.)
Piero launches a new restaurant on the Bay (Mariner’s Mile) in Newport Beach (
Louie’s) early in the New Year with Proprietor El Cholo . We’ll report on it. Ron Salisbury
