Maximiliano's | Northeast L.A. | Italian | Restaurant
Chef Andre Guerrero's latest venture, an Italian restaurant in Highland Park, is a family-oriented project: it's named after his son, and is in the neighborhood where Guerrero grew up. Serving pizzas, pastas and other classic Italian comfort food, you won't find pulled pork or ube shakes -- you can get those at Guerrero's nearby hot spot, the Oinkster. You will find old-fashioned spaghetti and meatballs and an atmosphere as comforting as the food. —Amy Scattergood

Because you've finally transcended a soul-crushing abundance of taqueros, great bars and really good regional Mexican restaurants with a slightly befuddling celebrity-chef-owned trattoria of your very own. The conceit here is re-invented red-sauce Italian cooking, enlivened by high design -- plywood fins; green soffiting; red walls etched...
