Cecconi’s is power lunch central in West Hollywood, and has the kind of scene that goes along with that. There are plenty of agents, wannabe agents, and people with plenty of money but highly vague occupations, but the place feels fun rather than uptight. Oddly enough, the food here isn't half bad. The spaghetti with lobster might be $38, but it’s solid, and the $9 burger they do between 3pm and 6pm is one of our favorites in the city. Now you know.
