Colori Kitchen Gets Westways Writeup

Downtown favorite Colori Kitchen gets featured in the March/April 2008

Colori Kitchen gets a very favorable write-up in the March/April 2008 issue of Westways magazine, the print publication of the Automobile Club of Southern California. The piece looks at "Bargain Bites" -- spots where two can eat for under $25.

Past a fairly grim-looking doorway in this transitional block (over here, rehabbed $750,000 lofts; over there, a shabby residence hotel) is a charming room with old brick walls, wooden tables, and an open kitchen where co-owner/chef Luigi Barducci Contessi (formerly of Ca'Brea) turns out delicious Italian classics at bare-bones prices ... The crowd is a wonderful downtown mix: fire captains and lawyers sitting next to loft-dwelling screenwriters and fashion-district hipsters.

Perhaps publicity like this can eventually push the eatery into some weekday dinner hours. Currently they're open for lunch Monday through Friday, dinner Thursday through Saturday. Colori is located at 429 W. Eighth street.
