Editorial Review

by Contributor at Citysearch, August 13, 2003

Formerly McCann's, now informally great.
The Name
Dish, the word, can be defined as the act of dispensing juicy gossip, a slightly upturned container for serving food or a good-looking woman. Dish, the bar and osteria (an Italian word that eludes exact translation, but roughly means a "gathering place," similar to an Irish pub), is to some the "latest thing," while others find it simply a bar with good drinks at great prices without the crowds two blocks away on Carson. Some of the original McCann's flavor has been maintained--including a guardian leprechaun--and the building has been restored to its former architectural glory.


The Food
The menu is made up mostly of appetizers, with three or four main courses on any given night. The pasta e fagioli soup is thick and rich; mussels and shrimp are also great. A nice option for the group is formaggi e salumi, an assortment of three or four meats and salamis, as well as three pungent and delicious cheeses. As a dessert, don't miss the creme Catalana, the Italian version of creme brulee.

Who's There; What To Wear?
Skateboarders, stockbrokers, your favorite college professor, hot-spot hunters; Letterman sweater, white dinner jacket, Brian Setzer concert T-shirt.
