If youre looking for a decent slice of New York style pizza without pretensions in the trendy Fairfax district, stop by Pizza World. They serve pizza by the slice in large, cheesy portions, which should satisfy even an East Coast transplant.
This kosher eatery specializes in Italian and Mexican food at reasonable prices. A wide selections of salads and pasta dishes are available. Salmon is a specialty and offered with a variety of entrees. The only quibble is that there are no free refills on the fountain drinks.
Pizza World is a few blocks south of the Grove, but its possible to get free parking most days on the side streets off of Fairfax. Read the signs carefully.
