2013_damiano.jpgThe road to a new restaurant from team Animal/Son of a Gun in place of shuttered neighborhood institution Damiano Mr. Pizza doesn't sound like cupcakes and rainbows, per the LA Times. Mitchell Kitay, owner of Damiano Mr. Pizza, claims that he was forced out by Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, the chefs/owners of Animal and Son of a Gun who also control the building which housed Damiano Mr. Pizza.
