Villa Blanca is a romantic, elegant, and exquisitely decorated restaurant that serves an interesting fusion of Italian, Mediterranean, and Asian cuisines. The atmosphere is relaxed, music is soft, and tablecloths are crisp and white. There are plenty of fresh flowers around the dining room and original art hangs on the walls. It is the place where you can bring a client you want to impress and where you can frequently rub elbows with a celebrity or two.
But, the best reason to come is the food. Try their Ahi Tuna Tartare – raw tuna with cucumber, avocado, aioli, scallions, and balsamic reduction, which is served with basil, capers, tomatoes, and truffle chips. They also offer a fantastic Sunday brunch, when they serve everything from smoked salmon scramble to pizzas and steaks with a mimosa or two.
