Celestino Drago’s new Osteria Drago started its lunch service this week, doubling your opportunity to get in the door of this Sunset scorcher. The West Hollywood audience will appreciate light antipasti like melon with Parma prosciutto, kale and vegetable soup, and buffalo mozzarella caprese, as well as options for both small and entree-sized salads, as in a bantam serving of grilled peaches, arugula, and speck and bigger options like warm salmon with mixed greens and Belgian endive. Pasta and meat dishes look enticing, including a grilled swordfish with cherry tomatoes, capers, and oregano, squid ink spaghetti with Manila clams, spelt fettucine, veal Milanese with panzanella, and—Dio ci Benedirà!—sea urchin tagliolini. See the full menu below, served Monday through Friday at 8741 West Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood; 310-657-1182.
