The Westside's Best Pizza Now Available At Home.

Pizzana is really good. For their first (almost) year though it's been a little too difficult to consume their lovely pizza pies because the restaurant has been so darn busy and the reservations hotter tickets than Paul Simon at the Bowl (is that a cool reference?). So many have either braved the brutal weekend waits amongst the Brentwood beauties or just not indulged at all. Which is a damn shame because they make the best non-Mozza pizza in town.

Our cries of desperation have finally been heard though as they recently hooked up with ChowNow to offer pick-up for all and delivery for the lucky proximal neighbors. You can order here.

My recommended order: start with the garlicky as heck Cesare, then order 2-3 pies (Messicana and Pepperoni for sure, maybe plus a Neo Margherita or the super spicy Oglio Olio) and finish with Candace Nelson's signature dessert, Chocolate Olive Oil Cake. I promise it'll be much better than my Paul Simon at the Bowl metaphor.

Sweet Rose Opening on Main Street Santa Monica. Dollar Scoops Friday.

One of the LA's more superior scooperies, Sweet Rose Creamery, is expanding within its home city. The purveyors of the best Salted Caramel ice cream in town take over the vacant Three Twins spot on Santa Monica's Main Street at 2726 Main Street, between Hill & Ashland. Located across the street from the popular all day eatery, Ashland Hill, the new Sweet Rose is a junior varsity stone's throw from their Pico location (not to mention its first location in the Brentwood Country Mart), but in a far more desirable lick-while-you-walk environ. 

To celebrate the new locale's commencement, this Friday, March 16, they're offering $1 scoops to all from 4-7 pm.

My Only Weekly Lunch.

What: Greens & Grains.
Where: Cava.

Why: If you've poked around this very world wide website before you know: I eat. A lot. Not 'healthy' at all. Readers/followers interpret my diet either as a) bad ass, or b) you're going to kill yourself. Fret not my brohemes, I do NOT eat entire deep dish pizzas for lunch... on the reg. In fact, I spend a good amount of my "non-blog eating time" trying really darn hard to eat healthy. It's not always easy peasy though. I'm not a "salad and lean protein and olive oil and lemon" sorta dude. I need some goddamn flavor, even for my 'healthy' meals. 

Honestly, my first few Cava visits were rather uninspired. I couldn't figure out 'my order.' They seemingly had all these delicious, tasty offerings, but I just couldn't concoct a winning lunch. Then I sorta stumbled on their Greens & Grains - accidentally, as I'm pretty sure the employee misheard me - and I've been addicted ever since. Cava has quickly evolved into my only weekly lunch; as in, it's the only place I eat lunch at least once a week. It's mandatory dining. You are welcome to make your own G & G, but if you're wondering my usual order (pictured above): Splendid Greens, brown basmati rice, grilled chicken, Eggplant Red Pepper dip, Crazy Feta, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, pickled onions, cabbage slaw, Tomato + Onion salad, kalamata olives, and a little of both Lemon Herb Tahini and Green Harissa dressings. It's a whole bowl of fucking deliciousness, which, when all mixed together, does not taste like a 'healthy' meal at all. 

Now, I know some of you are like, that's not that healthy, bro. It is for me though. It's not an entire deep dish. 

Although now I want deep dish.
