Our brethren to the west, both Curbed LA and the on-the-verge Eater LA (next week, peops, sorry about that), are atwitter with field reports from the opening of Mozza, the pizza joint collab of Mario Batali, Joe Bastianach and Nancy Silverton. Marissa Gluck Cubed LA's food guru ruled, "Food was great. Pizza didn't disappoint. Perfect char. Service a little too eager. Seems like a 1 to 1 ratio of staff to customer." And from Eater LA,
We asked one guy how the pizza was, and he said, mouth full of dough, "It's f**king great." Around the second rush, we noticed Kirsten "Kiki" Dunst sitting at a table near the door, fallen chef Jessica from "Hell's Kitchen: Season 1" vying for a table, and that chick who played Joey Potter's college roommate on "Dawson's Creek" sitting at the bar. We assume the third seating brought in even more A-D listers, but we couldn't wait around for the show.(Don't you love those sceney name-dropping bastards already?)
As an added bonus, there is the the receiptrocity, by which a bounty is placed on the Salumi Thief's head.
