What to Eat at Oliverio, Soft Open in Avalon Hotel

Oliverio's spaghetti with spicy langoustines

Oliverio's spaghetti with spicy langoustines

Blue on Blue at the Avalon Hotel has been replaced by Oliverio, now soft-open for Italian brunches, lunches, and dinners from chef Mirko Paderno, formerly of All' Angelo and Cecconi's in West Hollywood. Oliverio is set on a bamboo-enclosed patio with private cabanas around the hotel's pool, with an interior of wooden folding screens, a Cippolino marble bar, and gilt ceramic columns. Avalon's menu of upscale comfort food has been replaced by a serious Italian selection from Paderno, which skews towards regional recipes in selections of various crudo, pizza, handmade pasta, and antipasti. Meat and fish dishes include a Piedmont rib-eye steak, chicken diavola, and a branzino with candied tomatoes, while pastas utilize Manila clams and braised lamb, and a saffron risotto makes the best of pan-seared bone marrow. Paderno is committed to using herbs grown in Avalon's rooftop garden as well as California-raised meats. Paderno's dinner menu at Oliverio is below.
