Cecconi’s is the quintessential Los Angeles restaurant. A large, bright space with a beautiful ambiance, Cecconi’s is the go-to for Hollywood’s biggest names and biggest foodies. With meals served at all times of the day and plenty of gluten-free options, Cecconi’s is one of my go-to restaurants. Whether you go for brunch, drinks, or a night out with the squad, you are guaranteed to have a good time…
I had the opportunity to go to Cecconi’s this week for lunch, and ordered my classic go-to dishes, and there are other gluten-free favorites I have yet to try! The Kale Salad with shaved almonds and topped with shrimp and the Chopped Salad with grilled salmon are two of my favorites, and I order one of these salads each time I go to the restaurant. The salads are the perfect meal-size. Whatever you do, you HAVE to order the cauliflower- it is the most popular dish at Cecconi’s! A large, green cauliflower head is served roasted whole and seasoned with salsa verde and almond aioli, and it is absolutely delicious. In addition to the classic items like salad, octopus, carpaccio and crudo that are all naturally gluten-free, Cecconi’s also serves gluten-free pasta and pizza, which they clarify on the menu! My friend and I are both dairy-free, too, so we ordered the gluten-free Zucchini pizza with basil and olive, and we subbed the ricotta base for tomato sauce. The pizza was SO tasty! I’m totally making my gluten-eating friends order a GF pizza at our next Girls’ Night Out!
Whether you go for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you are guaranteed to love Cecconi’s. The only meal I have yet to try at the restaurant is brunch, which is (I’m told) the best time to go to. I will absolutely be back soon!
