Peppone Ristorante, Brentwood, California was the meeting place of the week, not bad for an evening of laughs and entertainment with Michael Trope, Christian Nazarian and of course me, John Nazarian. We had a nice table in a little room off the bar and it is in fact a little old New Yorkish…
But whoever did those imitation Tiffany lamps should be taken out to the back and made to eat bad gnocchi! ….high dollar joints should never use FAKE TIFFANY anything. And I have always enjoyed “red light” joints.
Back to the dinner. It seems no matter where Michael Trope and I eat, we find a celebrity or two. Tonight was no different, Tom Selleck was sitting at a table with a few older gentlemen and looked, well, like Tom Selleck.
Our food was good and we all avoided the Filet Mignon meatballs as it was my opinion that this would be an attack on our wallets! …I have often stated many times, I make one of the best meatballs that I have ever tasted. … My son Chris had a nice side of $36 risotto, this would be $7-8 in a nice Italian place as a small side, NOT HERE. …Michael also had a chicken dish and there were no complaints coming from his side of the table. Stand by! …Gelson’s Supermarkets just looked like a giveaway!
Hey the bottom line is this, Peppone’s is not cheap, but the food was good, the service was very friendly and attentive and we had a great evening. Tough to complain, when Michael Trope parked his Bentley Convertible at the curb in front of the restaurant and I had parked my Bentley right behind his….it was a very L.A. moment, two white Bentleys sitting in front of a pricey Brentwood eatery.
Note: Peppone’s has a reputation for being a place that old rich guys will bring their much younger “girlfriends” and snuggle, yuk. Tonight was no exception, some old rich guy brings his “girlfriend” and they fought and snarled right next to us while they snacked on appetizers. It was great! It was like being at work for all three of us. She was very attractive and young, he was old and paid with a Black American Express card, enough said! “Love, is it not special, and very nice“, “ How much”?
Read the rest of Mr. Nazarian critique of a night out with son Chris and good friend Michael Trope, however this article leaves you very hungry for high quality food. While at Desperateexes be sure to spend some time reading articles. Some are funny, some blunt, and many educational
