Pizzeria Sei, owned by a Providence, Ronan and Pizzana vet, opens in Pico-Robertson

Pizzeria Sei

A pizzeria serving wood-fired pies along with salads, small dishes and homemade tiramisu is now open on the corner of Pico and Robertson Boulevards. Pizzeria Sei, by husband and wife team William Joo and Jenn So, showcases the Japanese style of Neapolitan pizza preparation, with light sauce and pressed edges creating a chewy but still fluffy crust. Classics include margherita and marinara, as well as other options — like the funghi topped with mushroom and thyme, and the bismarck topped with prosciutto and egg — with additions like anchovies, fior di latte, and arugula. This is the couple’s first restaurant and builds on Joo’s career as a chef in the kitchens of Providence, Pizzana, Ronan and Angelini Osteria. It offers delivery and takeout, as well as seating to eat at a wrap-around counter with a view of Joo making the pizzas and operating the oven. Pizzeria Sei is open from Wednesday to Monday from 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m

Casa Vegas is a classic

One of LA’s longest-standing and most influential Mexican restaurants has just received a prestigious dining award. This month, Casa Vega was honored with the James Beard Foundation’s America’s Classics Award, given annually to locally owned restaurants that are “regionally loved for quality food that reflects the character of their community.” Casa Vega — founded in 1956 by Rafael “Ray” Vega and now owned by daughter Christy Vega — helped introduce Mexican food and margaritas to the San Fernando Valley and countless Angelenos, and over the decades has garnered celebrity and generational fandom . Casa Vega was one of six restaurants named America’s Classics in 2022 and is the only honoree in California this year.
