Hey gang. Been a resident of Santa Monica all my life (40 years), but I've just recently found this message board. How little one truly knows about his hometown.... Terrific!
Anyway, I had a question for thin-crust, NY-style pizza lovers. Is there anything on the westside of LA worth noting? I am old enough to remember the halcyon days of LaBarbara's (on Wilshire), Regular John's (San Vicente), De Vita's (on Wilshire back when it was worthy), etc. While I'm a fan of such ingongruous spots such as "NY by the Slice" on Venice Boardwalk and SM Pizza (on Wilshire), is there anywhere else worth noting in this area? I'm not talking Calif. Pizza Kitchen or Pucks either - just the real-deal thincrust. I realize I'm being a a fussy connoisseur/snob, but finding such a gem is truly a quest. If anyone can solve this dilemma, this board can.
