Happy Hour at Soleto
Check out this beaut of a happy hour:
Soleto Happy Hour
Mon – Fri, 3-7pm
Deals: $3 Sangria, $4 Wine, $3 Beer + $3-$5 Plates + $8 Antipasto Platter
Soleto is the new IDG restaurant in the old Zucca spot on Fig. For those that don’t know, and probably don’t care to know, though I shall tell you anyway: Zucca was the first real restaurant I dined at after moving to LA. I remember nothing about the food, or the decor, though I do recall I was there as the date of my good friend NT for a frat formal. Brotherhood and shit. Good times.
Now back to the good part (said ala MBolton SNL style): Food items on the Soleto Happy Hour menu include a white bean hummus with tomatoes & pizza crust, ricotta bruschetta, polenta croquettes, shrimp oreganato, fontina fonduta with grilled veggies, and an antipasti platter with salamis, grana padana, apricot mostards, charred brocollini and crostini. YUM.
Immediately after seeing these awesome HH deals, V and I busted out our trusty abacai: (6x$4+$8+$3+$4)/2… lets see… MDAS…. carry the two… = less than $20 per wonderfully buzzed and happily sated person (well, before tax+generous tip, of course!)
That is AWESOME.
If you care to understand our math better: 6 glasses of wine (3 per person) at $4 per glass, split an $8 antipasto platter, and go sharezies on some ricotta bruschetta ($3) and polenta croquettes with marinara ($4). As previously stated, though we must repeat: and equation for a wonderfully buzzed and happily sated couple of gals.
