Deep dish specialist Dough Box is heading out of their 200 square foot commissary kitchen and into a real-life restaurant home soon. According to co-owner Alexandra Gonzalez, she and Tony Hernandez have found room inside an old Mexican bakery on Eastern Avenue in El Sereno.

The move seems perfect for the pair, as it will give them a bit more elbow room — quite literally, as well as figuratively — without leaving the larger area that has supported them since first opening. They’ll move slightly northeast from their current City Terrace home, but the expanded hours (and their location across the street from a school) will undoubtedly be good news for everyone involved.

Gonzalez says the move one mile north should happen in March, so until then should mostly be business as usual at their takeout and delivery-only spot closer to Downtown. Once they get up and running in El Sereno, expect a larger menu and lots of other fun stuff down the line.
