Lunch at E Baldi - Again!

E Baldi is at 375 North Canon Drive, Beverly Hills.  This is one of our favourite places for lunch, and we come here every time we are in LA, so obviously I have blogged about it before.  It's a small restaurant with a small outdoor area.  Edoardo Baldi is the Chef/Owner.  Italian born, he credits his mother and grandmother with teaching him how to cook, although he did work at his father's restaurant early in his career.  His describes his food as "True, simple Tuscan food with an accent of Emilia Romagna that I love to make for my customers".
Edoardo is the son of the famous Giorgio Baldi who owns the fabulous Giorgio Baldi Ristorante in Santa Monica.  He sadly passed away last year.

We sat outside, which is a great spot for people watching.  Lots of famous faces at the restaurant - directors, executives.  And an amazing array of fabulous 'Beverly Hillsers', not to mention the dogs!

The only trouble with coming back here is I always order the same dishes.  What can I say?  They are both just exceptional and I have never had anything like them.

To start, the Spelt, Langostine, Cannellini, Celery, Cherry Tomatoes & Lemon Insalate.  There are also fine slices of Basil and the combination is just wonderful, especially with the warm Langostine, so light and tender.
Followed by the Sweet Corn Agnolotti, Mascarpone, Truffle Butter.  To die for!  The creamy corn bursts out of the tiny Agnolotti, and the Truffle taste is perfectly balanced.  As this was really a starter, I should have asked for a double serve - we have done in the past.
Hal also had the Sweet Corn Agnolotti to start, then the Lasagna Verde with Besciamella and Meat Ragu  - another favourite - and said it was as fabulous as ever.
Fabulous food, great service.  Highly recommended.
