Southern CA: Pizza is more than the Italian's Marguerite - it can have pork belly, raw vegetables, butternut squash, squid - let's face it, it's fair game for all things edible.
Aerialists, burlesque, silent films, history, the 1st approved "Disney" drink ever, and the newly hired Chef Saito is why I love the Edison. Pork belly pizza. Let's start there ...
Who doesn't enjoy artistic fare while jaunting through LACMA? Ray's has some decent dishes but the Happy Hour Menu is my favorite. Cocktails with story, dishes with flare, and plain ole pizza.
While the chefs and culinary staff change, the cocktail menu is fun as is the shared plates menu. The architecture of the building is beautiful.
Located in the OC Anti-Mall, The CAMP, ECCO is a casual rustic stop when you want to grab a Diavola pizza, a hearty burger, inventive salad, sip on a surprising selection of brews on tap and global wines, and relax.
After meeting Restauranteur and Exec Chef, Jeff Mahin, I couldn't help but love the process behind a mere pizza crust. A baguette crust with inventive toppings (go for the butternut squash with candied bacon), and do not miss tasting the creme de pot = sublime.
