Today’s the day for pizza in Studio City, as the long-anticipated LBK has begun serving slices and whole pies as of 11 a.m., and the neighborhood is already lining up.
The entire Tujunga Village community has been poking around and asking questions about LBK for months now, especially once the East Coast expats began popping up around town with small catering gigs, neighborhood street fairs, and even at last weekend’s L.A. Times-backed The Taste food event in Hollywood. Mostly everyone’s been keen to get a peek at the restaurant’s pies, a simple neo-neapolitan offering that stems from the company’s time in Brooklyn, New York.
As for the LBK space itself, this is a tiny slice of real estate right on Tujunga Avenue, sitting at just under 200 square feet in total. That means there’s no hanging out inside unfortunately — just room to grab a pie to-go or a slice for the sidewalk. The company plans on keeping its wood-fired catering rig for larger events, but the brick & mortar spot is now open, keeping hours from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, with an extension to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
