Mozza 2 Go Delivery: Are You in the Zone?

If you live in Nancy Silverton's neighborhood or, to be more specific, the vicinity of her new Mozza 2 Go restaurant, you doubtless know that you can now get her near-legendary pizzas delivered. Many years ago, one's hipness in this town was measured by whether one lived in the 90210 area code, or maybe it was along the chic corridor of Melrose Place, or maybe it was just south of Sunset Boulevard's Maginot line. Whatever. The rent might have been astronomical, the rah-rah factor absurdly high, but was the pizza any good?

These days what matters is whether you're inside Zone 3, which is the farthest Mozza 2 Go currently delivers. This puts you within a target area roughly defined by Doheny to the west, Hoover to the east, Pico to the south, and somewhere not quite exactly outlined just north of the Hollywood Bowl.

If you live outside of that perimeter, Mozza has future plans for you (see the rough concentric rings expanding out from Mozza's Melrose-and-Highland epicenter, like ripples from a very large dropped orange Croc). Silverton says that eventually they'll go out even further, to 4 and 5 and even zone 6. But for now you'll just have to valet park like everyone else. Those who live the closest to Mozza have the added benefit of cheaper delivery, as the prices go up the further away the drivers have to travel. Delivery prices also decline on orders over $100. The upshot of which is, I guess, to live close by and eat a lot.

On the computer at the restaurant--the entire complex now occupies a goodly part of a city block, between the Pizzeria, the Osteria, Mozza 2 Go and the as-yet-unopened pizza school--there is a program which tells you, if you type in an address, whether it and thus you are in the zone, and therefore eligible for delivery service. Better than TMZ.

Mozza 2 Go: 6610 Melrose Ave., Hollywood; (323) 297-0100.

    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner.

    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.

    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
