A Westside chef is planning a “Tokyo-style” pizza restaurant in Mar Vista right near the Culver City border.
Earlier this month Jason Neroni of The Rose Venice announced plans to open a restaurant in the former A-Frame space at 12565 Washington Boulevard in Mar Vista.
“At some point, when the world goes back to ‘normal’ I will be opening a pizzeria in the magnificent A-Frame building on Washington. It will be based on my travels in Tokyo and their exceptional pizzas,” Neroni wrote in an April 2 Instagram post.
According to Neroni, the food will also be influenced by his other restaurant, B Side Pizza and Wine Bar, in New York City.
While an opening date has yet to be announced, The Rose Venice will be serving a preview of food with a big eye tuna pizza marinated in ginger oil, miso, sweet potato and kewpie purée, wasabi vinaigrette and scallion curls.
The A-Frame restaurant, from chef Roy Choi, closed in December 2019 after nine years serving fusion cuisine in a Hawaiian-themed a-frame building.
