http://www.pattyspizza.com/orders/ Check it out. Black Angus has enjoyed a reputation as a family style steak house. Yet, I haven’t visited a steak house in the last decade, or maybe the last 2 decades. I have some very happy memories of Black Angus Restaurant visits with my small children and their grandparents in the early 1990′s. Pizza forward to 2012, I cook better, I eat healthier, and I share more….I love the crispy pepperoni coins on the Bulls Eye pepperoni pizza. They grilled the crust very well. I’m not a huge fan of BBQ chix pizza because usually the sauce steams instead of grilling the crust. But the Bulls Eye Bar did a great job of avoiding this common problem. I wish a long and happy pairing of Black Angus Bulls Eye Bar and Patty’s Pizza.

La Vecchia Revisited by this cub reporter
Glad you enjoyed the restaurant. I read your post and wanted to mention that we do make our own dough in house daily.
La Vecchia Cucina
I was happy to be corrected on my post. I have a huge amount of learning to do on my path to foodie editor. After I write and post about a restaurant that I’ve visited, I like to send my link to the management of the restaurant. This particular time I received an email back from the manager of La Vecchia restaurant to correct my statement about their pizza dough (see above) I’m so embarrassed, that I forgot to ask the 5ws that I learned in highschool. ha ha. who, what, when, where, why.The pizza crust at La Vecchia was so perfectly prepared and cooked that I presumed that it wasn’t made “in house”. I gave it a better review than I thought it deserved. So, now that the management has let me know, it isn’t made ‘in house’, I must change my mind. I stand by my thoughts, that this is one of the best happy hours that I have ever visited in the LA area. This posting is about pizza, not happy hours . So,.. I like it less, knowing that they make their own dough, daily. The taste was flat. The crust needed a crusty rim with lots of air holes. Their crust needs a more wheaty taste and they should add more salt to their batter. Signing off as your Cub Pizza Reporter. I live and I learn.
La Vecchia, Santa Monica CA
La Vecchia has one of LA’s best happy hours. They offer smaller, but not small, plates of their best selling dishes at reduced prices along with happy hour prices on their wines. I ordered my favorite margarita pizza. The crust wasn’t made ‘in house’ but it was nicely charred the way I like my pizza. Their pizza was topped with a sweet tomato sauce, fresh basil leaves and stringy mozzarella. The crowd at the bar was lively on a weekday night. The room was noisy but not overly loud. My girlfriend, Debbie, ordered the pizza rustica. It was not to her liking and the management noticed and took it off our bill. Nice touch, La Vecchia.
