Friends & Family Pizza Co.
You had big dreams of getting to The Grove early for dinner before your movie, but now the previews are on and you’re still in the parking garage. Bee-line to Friends & Family Pizza for some quick nourishment. Run by the same people behind the reliable East Hollywood bakery/cafe, this pie counter on the far west side of the market serves classic, NYC-style slices that are hot, ready, and in your hands within 30 seconds. The sourdough crust is thin and crispy, and toppings such as sausage and rapini or pesto-roasted tomatoes (our personal favorite) are plentiful and well-distributed across each slice. If you aren’t in a rush, they also sell full pies, too.
