Guests of a Guest spies Sean MacPherson's team working on opening a new Italian restaurant at the old Orso space on Third Street at Robertson, which he took control of in the fall of 2009. The new restaurant will be called "Il Covo" and has already made guinea pigs out of publisher Benedikt Taschen and his friends at a 50th birthday throw-down this weekend, where guests sampled some test dishes of the authentic Italian fare to come. In the kitchen will be chef Roberto Maggioni, last found at Locanda del Lago in Santa Monica. Apparently, this one is just about ready to go, with Sean and the chef just putting the finishing touches on the menu before announcing an opening date.
Il Covo, 8706 W Third St. West Hollywood.
