Focal Length:28mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS-1D Mark II N

At Joe Dimaggio’s Italian Chophouse in the Domain Marilyn Monroe is front and center with a room devoted to her striking photograph accented by wonderfully rich red-colored furniture. It was well-known the legendary Dimaggio was romantically linked to the blonde bombshell and the restaurant bearing his name has many artifacts attesting to that romance. It also features a varied menu with tasty savories.


The outdoor sitting area, complete with a gas burning fireplace, is a great place to enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres while passing the time people-watching. For more on a review see XL in the Statesman on February 12, 2009.
