800 Degrees Pizza Restaurant Review

: Chef Anthony Carron, former Michael Mina corporate chef, is behind this pizza concept --- he left part of the business aspect to Adam Fleischman, famous for the Umami Burger chain, who himself partnered with the sbe group (SLS, The Bazaar, Katsuyas). In any case, here is how it goes at the eatery named for the temperature of the wood-burning ovens. If you are not discouraged by the line that can stretch way outside the door --- at least it must mean that people like it --- you will be able to build your very own pizza by selecting among more than forty toppings that are right in front of you behind a long display. Proteins include clams, Sicilian anchovies, prosciutto di Parma sliced to order, and uncured Fra’Mani rosemary ham. Among vegetarian options are roasted garlic, caramelized onions, peppadews and organic heirloom cherry tomatoes. Add smoked provolone or truffle cheese from Italy. If you are too lazy to decide what to put on the pizza, choose one of “The Classics” or “Specialty Pies.” It’s whisked into the (yes, 800-degree) oven and cooked in about 60 seconds; you then grab it and choose your table or take it home. All of the pies are topped with fresh mozzarella and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and come with a thin crust, as is the case with the original pizza that was created in Naples in 1889. Soft drinks come from an Italian-designed Pininfarina soda machine that allows you to create 300 varieties of soda. You can start with a salad and finish with gelato. Wine and beer are available. Thumbs up for the original beautiful Art Déco ceiling and the cheap prices, which start at $5.35 for the Marinara (that does not have cheese). If you don't have time to sit down, stop by "800 Degrees To-Go," located right around the corner from their restaurant at 1146 Westwood Boulevard. Although the full menu is available for takeout, the Panouzzo sandwiches are the star attraction. The pizza-dough-based sandwiches feature combinations such as spicy braised lamb (goat cheese, Calabrian chiles and arugula) and Autostrada (cured meats, provolone, spicy pepper relish). Other locations.
