Ago Restaurant at the Hard Rock Hotel
Friday night four of us ate at Ago in the Hard Rock. The restaurant first started in Los Angeles ten years ago and has been quite popular ever since. As is often the case, it has a celebrity name behind it lending cache. In this case it is Robert De Niro.
We are talking gourmet authentic Tuscan-style Italian food conceptualized by restaurateur Agostino Sciandri. Everything was excellent – food, service and décor.
We had a wide range of items which included a signature peach martini which was a great start. Among many interesting items, there was a wild boar pasta, and a very creative goat cheese, beets, and arugula salad. I thought my chicken (although somewhat mundane) was the best item. Allyn had a “basic” capellini pomodoro, which was a good as she has had anywhere.
