Tucked down a side alley and identified by only a subtle sign, One Pico fits the definition of "off the beaten path." But do make a reservation and update your GPS because locating this lovely restaurant is worth the effort.
We hosted a business dinner at One Pico in June 2013 and, as another reviewer stated, "Bad reviews are old." Our multi-course meal was excellent, the wine was superb the 'white linen' service was excellent and the private dining area - tucked at the top of narrow staircase - was intimate but not crowded, subtle and quiet. The wait staff was extremely attentive - my wine glass was never less than half full - helpful and courteous. Our group of thirty Director and VP-level guests left very satisfied. Bonus: The duck was to die for.
