There’ll come a point at Drago Ristorante when you wonder why you’re eating a plate of pasta inside a car museum full of middle school field trips happening in full view, but then you figure said pasta is good enough that it doesn’t matter. Inside the Petersen Auto Museum, Drago certainly has a somewhat awkward location, but if want good pasta in an upscale-ish atmosphere, this is your spot.
