It’s officially pizza time in Highland Park, with today’s announcement of the grand opening of Triple Beam Pizza. The Nancy Silverton/Matt Molina collaboration gets off and running for limited service hours tonight.
Triple Beam Pizza is a different kind of beast than what one might expect from Silverton, one of the most admired chefs in America, and Molina, the James Beard winner who of late has been crafting delicious food at Everson Royce Bar in the Arts District. This is Roman-style pizza, offered in long, thin sheets and cut by length. Slices are paid by weight, and served room temperature just like in Rome (though they can be heated up upon request).
Triple Beam Pizza also offers sandwiches as a secondary option, as well as beer and $8 glasses of wine. The project is a joint venture with Randy Clement of Silverlake Wine, so it’s no surprise that there are drinks to be had. As for the rest of the restaurant complex opening up on Figueroa today, look for an incoming Go Get Em Tiger coffee shop that serves its own food menu, as well as a future Matt Molina solo restaurant in the back alongside the new Highland Park Wine bottle shop.
Triple Beam Pizza opens today at 4 p.m., running until 9 p.m. Those hours will keep for tomorrow as well, with a run from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Let the pizza party begin.
