Soft-opening party at the Deli at Little Dom's
As we reported earlier, the Deli at Little Dom's in Los Feliz is about to open. To celebrate, the popular Rat Pack-style hang is holding a very low-key neighborhood preview party Wednesday. Chef Brandon Boudet and pastry chef Ann Kirk will be on hand to meet guests, and those in attendance can try some of the deli specialties, including hot Italian sausage, roasted pepper and provolone panini, sheep's milk ricotta bruschetta, cherry-almond scones and torta della Nonna.
Located next door to Little Dom's, the deli effects the same vintage feel of the restaurant. (The goal is to evoke an old-world Italian deli.) Inside, you'll find an espresso bar and counter, an antique deli case, a pressed tin ceiling and green-and-white checkerboard floors. Daily specials will rotate, and there will be plenty of fresh-made sandwiches, salads and sweets.
The Deli at Little Dom's, 2128 Hillhurst Ave., (323) 661-0055. Open daily 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The space is also available for private parties.
