This joint fast became a favorite for Jon and me in 2015. Chris first took us in August – we fell in love – so I made sure we returned to 412 N Fairfax when we came back to LA in October. Here are some of the things I lurve about Jon & Vinny’s… I love that it’s owned by the same duo as Animal and Son of a Gun, Jon Shook & Vinny Dotolo. I could probably stop there and you would already check it out, huh?! I love their pint-sized dining space; it’s minimal in design, think clean lines and light wood. I love how the aligned pizza boxes serve as the only colorful décor – and they actually say ‘Pizza’ on them. I love that they’re an all day eating spot serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. I love how their pasta is made in house. I love that their pizza isn’t massive and overwhelming. I love how the crust is a bit charred and crisp. I love that they have a dessert menu and a tempting pastry case. I love the hip-hop playlist.
