Spot a shiny new opening on your block? Let us know.
Mozza fans waited with baited breath and now, finally,Mozza 2Go has officially started serving up (or, out) its famed pies. The market/to go shop/pizza school officially opened yesterday afternoon on Melrose (W. of Highland) with a grinning Nancy Silverton bustling behind the counter, offering the A-Z in gourmet Italian products, including the newly launched line of Mozza-brand edibles. Need some EVOO? Dried pasta with unpronounceable names? Canned tomatoes? Or even a cookbook? No problemo.
The Batali-Bastianich-Silverton joint venture number three encompasses a small retail area plus counter where the hungry can place takeout orders from a condensed pizza menu, and/or choose from several grab-and-go salads and desserts out of a refrigerated case. Adjacent to the retail space is a large room with seating, though this area will be used for private events and the Scuola di Pizza. Mozza 2Go offers both takeout/delivery, with the first order accepted at noon and the last order at 11:00 pm, Tuesday-Sunday. More photos to follow, stat. 6610 Melrose Ave.; (323) 297-1130; website
