Definitely my new favorite pizza in the Valley. Love the space, and it's totally better than 800 degrees. Seems like they have a few kinks to work out being its pretty new but I've been a few times as it's close to work and it continues to improve.

Is there anywhere to have a nice dinner in downtown LA?

Just make sure to request patio seating.

Foodie Bachelor Party dinner for 8 in Montreal - Joe Beef is Max 6 what would you recommend?

We initially wanted to have a dinner at Joe beef but their max size is 6 people and we would be 8.
If we want 1 great dinner while in Montreal for the weekend for a group of 8 foodies what would you recommend?
Where should we not miss?

Definitely going to do the delis for lunch but I am looking for the one stand out dinner option that we should have.

Thank you all for your help.

Yogurtland.... :)

I would have to say I prefer Menchies.
I am all about cookies and cream and cheesecake bites. Sometimes a little red velvet and cake batter. so good.

Where can I find canning jars?

I just found them at Ralph's last week.
I think it was about $10 for a 12pack of 8oz jars.

Mori vs Zo sushi question

Did you sit at the sushi bar ?
I wont go unless I sit at the bar anymore, I've been a few times and sat at a table and was always disappointed. But I've never been disappointed seated at the bar.

Katsu-ya Encino?

I was just there this week also courtesy of someone else.
Its not exceptional but you could do worse.
I would stick with their signature dishes and not expect any exceptional pieces of nigiri.
I ordered bluefin tuna which was on special and it was very sinewy, and there was a white line right done the middle of both pieces in plain sight that they obviously didnt bother to trim out, on top of that it did not taste good. Their regular tuna is of course the really bright pinkish one. The spicy tuna on crispy rice was good, as well as the yellowtail sashimi with jalepeno.But again.. dont expect the best quality fish and I personally would not go there on my own dime.

I guess what im steering towards is telling you to order dishes that mask the quality of the fish.

Ive seen them push tables together for parties of 6-8. Still not the most ideal.. but it worked.

Where to find a great cup of hot chocolate? Weho, Hollywood or Los Feliz preferred

Right by Los Feliz, you can head to Intelligentsia at Sunset Junction.
Really Good.
