Team Riva

I am glad to count Chef Jason Travi and the team at new Santa Monica hotspot Riva as my friends, so want to acknowledge that bias from the outset. I am rooting for Riva! Not that this second opening from the dream team that brought us Fraîche in Culver City needs it, as their fan base is already quite extensive. Riva is Chef Jason’s spin on Italian coastal cuisine with a nod to some seriously good pizza; with his wife/partner Miho handling pastry, manager Thierry Perez on wine and partner Keith Fox watching vigilantly, this same quartet of talents has finally brought “real” Italian food and wine to Santa Monica.
