Is Mulberry Street Pizzeria the Best NYC Pizza in L.A.?
In the interminable search for some of the best pizza in the Los Angeles area, we find ourselves at Mulberry Street Pizzeria in Beverly Hills, an early 90s stronghold now with two additional locations, another in Beverly HIlls and one in Encino. Reviews on Yelp are mostly all positive and raving, but there are those who offer a sharp contrast to this New York style pizzeria--in the battle over pizza in L.A., you can't win them all.
Mulberry offers a classic menu of full pizzas and slices, pasta, sandwiches, salads and desserts. A cheese pizza will run you $18.95 while speciality pizzas like the lasagna, eggplant parmesan and Bar-B-Q Chicken pizzas will run you $25 or more. Slices range between $3 and $4.25.
To us, it's a quality pizza that we'd never be hesitant to have again. It's classic, it's truly thin and it's tasty. Is it NYC? If it isn't, it's damn close. Is it the best? We'd pass on that giving that top honor out, but it surely makes our the list of place to continue frequenting.
