Cecconi’s West Hollywood
Cecconi’s was recently named winner of OpenTable Diners’ Choice Awards for the Top Hot Spot restaurant in the United States. There are so many things we love about this space; it feels open, yet intimate; classic, yet modern. The decor and specious patio makes this restaurant a lovely place for brunch. We have enjoyed many lunches and diners at Cecconi’s and always had a great service and overall experience. Say “Hi’ to the friendly general manager Marino while you here for us.
