A truck crashed into the front of one of Los Angeles' most famed restaurants, injuring one and ruining the Saturday night plans of several Hollywood bigwigs.
According to the Los Angeles Fire Department Twitter feed, a pickup truck drove into the front door of Osteria Mozza at the intersection of Highland and Melrose Avenues on Saturday afternoon around 12:45 p.m. One male worker was taken to the hospital with injuries not considered to be life-threatening. Safety inspectors will be checking the damage to the building.
Due to unforeseen circumstances @OsteriaMozza will be closed this evening. call 323.297.0100 to rebook. We apologize for the inconvenience.— Osteria Mozza (@OsteriaMozza) April 18, 2015
Although Osteria Mozza will obviously be closed, the neighboring Pizzeria Mozza was unaffected by the crash. The Hancock Park Italian restaurant, run by Nancy Silverton and Mario Batali, is regarded as one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles.
