I had dinner with my long time friend Jason Kidd last week, and it was lots of fun- as usual. The King of The Triple Double- 107 all time, 3rd behind Oscar Robinson and Magic Johnson isn’t missing a beat. The 17 year NBA veteran still has a lot of gas left in the tank leading the Dallas Mavericks to one of the best records in the West.
When it comes to food, Jason is a risk taker and open to trying new things. Historically, he always wants to finish first and the same holds true when it comes to a great meal.

Il Pastaio is a charming, casual Italian resto nestled in the heart of Beverly Hills. The European vibe and homemade pasta always hits the spot! The menu is simple and familiar but everything is done well! They have a great outdoor patio- perfect for people watching.
I had lunch there last week and it was very good!
Los Angeles during NBA All Star Weekend 2011 was a madhouse- in a good way. Lots of meetings, dinners, games and parties!
A few nights ago we were hanging out with Baron Davis- the dynamic, athletic, explosive point guard from the LA Clippers. Since he’s from LA, I wanted to get the foodie 411 on his favorite LA spots!

Corsino has a great atmosphere- it’s rustic and lively. I love having an option like this amongst the other MEPA restos. Sometimes you just want to grab a bite at a low-key neighborhood spot that has a cool vibe- and Corsino fits the bill!
The tasty Italian tapas and large plates are fantastic!
