Doma's mascarpone agnolotti with bone marrow
362 N. Camden Drive
“Sonja Perencevic, owner of the classic Dan Tana's in West Hollywood, brings a chic new restaurant to Beverly Hills. The kitchen at Doma (the Croatian word for "at home") is headed by Dustin Trani, a fourth-generation chef whose family has owned the esteemed San Pedro restaurant J. Trani since 1925. This young chef has worked in Italy and Croatia and trained in Thailand, and those influences shine through in his dishes. DOMA's menu leans toward Italian and is seafood-intensive with Thai influences. Standout starters include local crispy calamari and rock shrimp with Thai aioli, along with the Baja stone crab cakes. No breading here – these are made of extremely fresh and flavorful crab with a roasted pepper emulsion, burrata, and basil oil. The pasta dishes include a remarkable mascarpone agnolotti with bone marrow, veal demi-glace, chives, and beech mushrooms; and uni and stone crab ravioli with mascarpone, garlic, chili, and fresh clam juice. Grilled swordfish Milanese is superb, and served with olive oil mashed potatoes, warm tomato salad, and micro arugula. The prime New York steak, also superior, is accompanied by roasting fingerlings, cipollini onions, and veal demi-glace. Pizzas are also noteworthy, including one topped with white truffle oil, potato, fresh mozzarella, pancetta, and chives. With excellent service, a signature cocktail menu, and a desert chef offering low-sugar, gluten-free, and vegan options, there are myriad reasons to visit Doma.”
Sonja Perencevic, along with daughter Nikka Perencevic, is on a mission to continue the winning combination of unparalleled service, consistently solid cuisine and a touch of Hollywood scene befitting the Dan Tana's legacy. The Perencevic family plan to make DOMA L.A.'s premier, modern European restaurant with the food component of the venture taking center stage.
