Osteria Mozza

6602 Melrose Ave.
West Hollywood , CA , United States http://www.mozza-la.com/
(323) 297-0100

This lively Italian restaurant from Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali, and Joseph Bastianich, is located next door to popular sister establishment, Pizzeria Mozza. The burrata from Basilicata with bacon, marinated escarole, and caramelized shallots and the orecchiette with sausage and Swiss chard are worth braving the perpetually busy reservation line. Silverton is usually found behind the mozzarella bar, serving customers on the dozen stools surrounding her. Chef Matt Molina expertly prepares the rest of the brash Italian-country menu. Order the ricotta-and-egg raviolo in brown butter; whole fish wrapped in grape leaves.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

When this much-anticipated <em>osteria</em> opened, it replaced adjoining Pizzeria Mozza as the hottest reservation in town. Star baker-chef Nancy Silverton is usually found behind the mozzarella bar, serving customers on the dozen stools surrounding her. Chef Matt Molina expertly prepares the rest of the brash Italian-country menu.

We loved: Ricotta-and-egg in brown butter; whole fish wrapped in grape leaves.
