Highlights from the Rogue 99 ~ Casa Vega

12:20 AM PDT on September 5, 2018

    [dropcap size=big]C[/dropcap]asa Vega isn’t really a flashy restaurant, and it certainly isn’t fancy, and yet, there’s always at least one paparazzo lingering near the carport. That’s because a celebrity spotting is pretty much a guarantee — in fact, it’s just about as likely as the chance that you’ll decide mid-meal that yes, you would like a second margarita. The Valley restaurant is owned by one of L.A.’s old restaurant families: they opened their first in the 1930s, and this one has been open since 1956. Since most Hollywood folk actually live in the Valley, it’s been an industry hangout since day one. The dim lighting and dark wood always makes it seem a little sexy, even if you’re chowing down on a combo platter. (Actually, combo platters are incredibly sensual.) The service is friendly, the menu is huge, and the drinks are strong. The only problem is remembering if the person you recognize at the next table is from real life or just TV.
