Sunday Gravy feels like a casual, new Italian restaurant in an old-school Italian restaurant’s body. That’s probably because the brother and sister team behind it took over their dad’s pizza joint in Inglewood and gave it a total revamp. Tables are covered in red checkered tablecloths, but the bumping playlist has a mix of ethereal rap and sensual R&B. You can order a classic meatball sub, but they’ve also got a rotating lasagna special featuring options like garlic chicken and creamy spinach. It’s a masterful blend of the past and present, and it’s where we had our favorite Italian-American meal in recent memory. Make it a top priority for your next lazy Sunday dinner.
