The Monster ate at Evan Funke’s new Bucato but you won’t see any pictures of the meal because of an inane policy that both cell phones and cameras are verboten. So instead you will see random photos with no connection to the restaurant throughout this review. Whoa, look at that unicorn! This policy would be fine if this were Per Se or Daniel but given it is a casual Italian in Culver City at the Helms Building it all seems a little…full of itself.
It would even be tolerated if the food was so transcendent and the experience so amazing that pictures could never do it justice. It’s not.
