SANTA MONICA — Eater LA goes inside the closing of Valentino after 46 years. The iconic restaurant, which changed the Italian dining scene in Los Angeles, closed on New Year’s Eve. Owner Piero Selvaggio cites “not having a celebrity chef” as one of the reasons for the demise. “Valentino is no longer what’s new, what’s hot, what’s happening … I’m fighting the elements of novelty.” Valentino was once at the Venetian as well, closing in 2013 after 13 years.
