A prominent New York City-based travel and credit card points website The Points Guy is getting dragged in its own comments section for saying that Los Angeles is “finally getting a decent pizza place.” The article is a rehash of Eater LA’s own post all about Hollywood’s upcoming L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele, the famous Italian pizza staple, but the headline and opening paragraph seem to insinuate that pizza has never before been on the city’s radar. That’s not only laughably false (Jon & Vinny’s? Mozza? Pizzana? The recently-shuttered Sotto?) but stands in particularly stark relief at this very moment, when LA is basically overrun with pizza options across the city, from Roman style to deep dish to Neapolitan. Once again, New York City shows just how little it knows about the Left Coast.
Adam Perry Lang has been completely cleared of any wrongdoing in the swatting incident from last year, TMZ reports. The APL chef maintained from the beginning that the scary interaction with police was a misunderstanding that had nothing to do with him.

Venice coffee staple Menotti’s is expanding, opening up at Centinela and Washington later this year. The space takes some square footage from B&B Hardware at the corner, with the hardware store shrinking slightly to let the coffee company in to operate next door. Signage is already up.
Food Fest time
The Latin Food Fest is back for its seventh year this weekend, and participating chefs include Ricardo Zarate, Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, and Enrique Olvera, among a slew of other big local names.
The Brewers Association has a new list out on fastest-growing breweries across the country, and — surprise, surprise — Frogtown Brewery down by the LA River makes the cut. The association bases their findings on the relative production growth within each brewery, and Frogtown certainly has been making a lot more beer of late.
