Travis Lett’s incredibly thin pizzas, baked in a wood-burning oven, are just part of the reason Gjelina is one of the most buzzed-about restaurants in town. The place doesn’t accept reservations, which means there’s almost always a line for Lett’s casual California cuisine, like wood-roasted cauliflower with garlic, parsley and red chile. Prime seating is in the backyard near the outdoor fire pit. An annex called Gjelina Take Away, selling sandwiches and pizza, opened next door in 2011.
