Artisanal Cal-Pizza and Modern Chophouse

jlrobe | Sep 17, 200801:39 PM     6

I am relocating from LA to SF in a few months. I grew up in SF, so I am fairly familiar with the food scene.

The two restaurants I will miss most in LA are

Pizzeria Mozza and JAR

Many people don't like Pizzeria Mozza pizza, but those who do, LOVE it, and there is just NO comparison. Are there any pizza places that have a similar style to Mozza in SF? Also, the Mozzarella Bar at Osteria Mozza will also be missed.

Also, my favorite modern chophouse in LA was JAR.

The sides are modern, yet fresh, light, and comforting all at the same time. The meat entrees are very good and interesting like charsu pork chop, braised oxtail, and a mean pot roast. They also have an very solid brunch.

Interestingly enough, when Michael Bauer came to LA to review restaurants, JAR and Mozza were the best steaks and pizza, respectively, that he has had in years.

I am confident I can find replacements for my other favorites, but I am worried about these two. I will really miss them!

Any suggestions to ease my transition?
