It’s almost surprising that 800 Degrees has still yet to infiltrate Hollywood, what with its massive expansion across the country (and yes, even into Japan). But that’s all about to change this fall, after their long-known next location finally comes to life.

Tracking for a late October debut, L.A.’s favorite fast casual Neapolitan-style pizza option will land just north of the famed Sunset and Vine intersection, in the space previously held by the endlessly dormant Wolfslair Biergarten. Signage is up for the brand (an ABC has been posted for a while), and work continues inside.

The arrival of 800 Degrees can only mean good things for the area, which has struggled in some ways to hold onto its better dining options. While Hungry Cat, The Bowery, and others have certainly stabilized the intersection, plenty of short-lived alternatives — Go Burger, Minh Phan’s fantastic rotating Porridge and Puffs dinners — seem to come and go.

Once finished, look for 800 Degrees Hollywood to include the usual sleek layout and speedy pies, with the added bonus of patio seating overlooking the boulevard.
