Early Bite: Pitfire Pizza Opens Saturday in Culver City
With their fourth location poised to open this weekend, Pitfire Pizza hosted a preview tasting event at their almost-ready Culver City digs last week. Pitfire and I have something in common: we've both been in North Hollywood since the late 90s, which is why I've been enjoying watching the brand expand slowly over the last decade, finding success in Downtown and West L.A., and hopefully now in Culver City.
Pitfire's concept has been described as a fast-casual restaurant that happens to serve "slow-food," meaning that while you may dine in at or take out from the convenient, affordable, and consistent restaurant, the food you're getting is fresh, locally-sourced, and made to order. Following a consultation phase from local chef Mark Gold (now onto his own delicious endeavor, Eva) the Pitfire menu was revamped recently, and the changes do well to reflect the philosophy of its owners as well as some of the best artisan pizza in town.
