Never one to spend his time sitting around, chef Roy Choi is keeping himself busy these days with an entirely new pizza concept landing at The Line Hotel. It’s called (appropriately enough) POT Pizza Joint, and diners will be able to catch a bite as early as next month.
Choi has been teasing POT Pizza Joint on Instagram for more than a minute, showing off crusty corner slices that he says are “somewhere between Detroit, NYC and LA. Square but thin. Pan like Chicago but sauce on the bottom.” They certainly look at first blush to be similar to the grandma-style pies known more commonly on the East Coast, though this being Choi it’s a fair bet the final slice will be something new altogether. Eaters can also expect twists like sweet potato and spicy pork, which puts them (at least in flavor profile) similar in some sense to the recently reborn Koreatown Pizza Co. just up the street.
When asked about the pies last week, Choi’s team told Eater to think of the pizza as more of a “corner late night slice style versus anything gourmet.” Fittingly, slices will only be available on weekend (Friday and Saturday) evenings, starting at 6 p.m. and going until they serve the final slice (unclear when that is exactly). They’ll cook the pizzas off in the former POT space, and will serve them at the cafe up in front of the lobby.
