Marc Vetri spent the week in Los Angeles following Suzanne Goin’s L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade fundraiser, which he inspired at his Great Chefs of Philadelphia benefit. Having blown minds with his lamb mortadella sandwich in the past, Vetri is now on to melting faces, jamming with songwriter Phil Roy after making dinner in Hollywood’s Beechwood Canyon (with sous chefs Neal Fraser and Travis Lorton!) in support of his new Rustic Italian Food (he admitted publishers weren’t stoked on the less accessible title of his first tome, Il Viaggio di Vetri). Vetri proved himself a total ripper, soloing on several songs and never missing a lick, just as we’re told he does on occasion with Tom Colicchio and Jonathan Waxman. For more celebrity sightings this week at L.A.’s restaurants, see below.
