Obikà Mozzarella Bar – Los Angeles

Friday, November 5th, 2010


Obikà Mozzarella Bar has opened a sleek, ultra-modern designed space at the Westfield Mall in Century City. It has other locations throughout Italy and one in New York, and this LA outpost totals the 14th location with one more planned for the Beverly Center. At Obikà, the main event is the Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP which proprietor Silvio Ursini flies in three times a week from Italy’s Paestum and Agro Pontino regions. Of course, with a name like Obikà Mozzarella Bar, patrons can expect a lengthy mozzarella menu, but Obikà also serves salads, pasta dishes, and other entrees, so not every dish comes with a scoop of mozzarella. And because the menu offers both small plates and entree-sized portions, this could be a lunch, dinner, or  join them for Italian happy hour “aperitivo hour” and order a glass of wine plus bites off the mozzarella bar menu.

The Faraglioni Restaurant is about a two minute walk down Via Camerelle from the Grand Hotel Quisisana, and in the evening it is a very popular place to be seen, it means booking is essential. You can choose to sit outside, very pleasant or inside not as ideal. The restaurant attracts an international crowd and you may sample all the Caprese dishes as well as cooking from other regions and in addition they have a very comprehensive wine list to accompany the menu. Try to book one of the straw covered tables on the other side of the street, this is the A section.
