    Pizzeria Mozza

    My friend in Hollywood told me that there is a place there called Pizzeria Mozza which may have the best pizza in the world- topping even pizzeria bianco. has anyone on this board been there? my friend said the baker nancy silverton spent 5 years researching on how to make the perfect crust. the restaurant is co-owned by mario batali. my friend said the wait to get reservations in about a month (for pizza!?!). he also said they opened an Italian osteria next door serving more pasta that has an amazing mozzarella bar.

  3. The Danish Club of DC has their annual Xmas Bazaar Saturday morning.
  4. You can walk over to Harbor East very easily from the Aquarium- see earlier posts.
  5. Joe Squared pizza has a branch in the Power Plant, now. Also, a short walk will get you to Little Italy or Harbor East (Pabu, Wit & Wisdom, Tenten, Fleet St Kitchen, Cinghiale) which all have no dress code.
  6. Hampdenfest! It was really fun. The store you refer to is the Wine Source, right by Corner BYOB.
  7. Considering the paucity of OC posts- I say move it and merge it.
  8. Well- Delaware Beaches is in the Intrepid Traveller section, and geographically- those places are closer than OC.
  9. I don't think I'm making this a personal issue. You just want to be more constructive if you're going to lay down a line a like "mediocer(sic) overpriced food". It's like writing a review for a movie and saying "it sucks". We at this board want to hear about good and bad experiences but you have to back it up with some detail and constructive criticism. Why do you feel the food is overpriced? Why do you feel the quality is mediocre?
  10. Thanks goodeats. I would agree. borderdog, you really should expand on your critique of Woodberry. I think it has been around long enough that it is a Baltimore institution, and while I would agree the food is a bit pricey, I had one of the most inexpensive over the top meals here last fall. For a hundred bucks, I shared a whole pig's head with a have dozen sides of vegetables with 10 people. It was great and a surprising bargain for Woodberry. In regards to Baltimore's lack of "institutions", I'm not sure how long you've been in Baltimore, but there are quite a few of them: the Charleston g
  11. Had a whirlwind food trip weekend in LA- mostly around West Hollywood- in the past week. Arrive Thurs. night- went for sandwiches at Ink.sack, Michael Voltaggio's sandwich place. Not expensive- each sandwich was $5-6. I ordered the C.L.T.- chicken liver mousse, chicken skin, lettuce and tomato- and a pork belly banh mi to try. Both were very good. The menu has a lot of charcuterie based sandwiches. For sides, you can get Old Bay"Maryland" crab chips and pork rinds. The next day, went on a mini food truck safari. Started at eggslut for breakfast and had "thee slut", a coddled egg served in
  12. Stopped by this Monday when they have gnocchi nights, and I had their gnocchi with veal ragu which was tasty. Their menu looks to be turning over to spring as I had a great refreshing shredded asparagus salad with pine nuts & grana padano. For the pizza this time, we had the pancetta with onion. For my taste, I should remember to have them make the crust a little crispier when I order, and I found it slightly soggy in the center this time. Still a good chew to it though.
  13. Late night this past Saturday, I went with a group to the recently opened Hersh's Pizza & Drinks in the South edge of Federal Hill. The chef, Josh Hershkovitz, who used to work at Charleston & Petit Louis, opened the place with his sister to serve Neapolitan style pizza. They also feature housemade sausage and pasta on the menu. Their menu features a good selection of beer as well as an interesting array of cocktails. I started with a Fernando, made with Fernet Branca Galliano, & Cinzano. We chatted with Stephanie, the chef's sister and co-owner, a little. She recommended the ch
  14. Before seeing The Artist, popped back in to Lost City for another great meal. This time, I had the meatloaf with tomato gravy, mash, and carrots & peas. The preparation was fresh, and they kicked up the veggies and gravy with a little spiciness. I then shared the soy vanilla ice cream with wet nuts, chocolate and praline syrup. Their ice cream menu is pretty broad offering regular ice cream as well as vegan options. I need to get back to try one of the sundaes with bacon.
