Like tires, pizzas are round; unlike tires, they should not be used as a device to swing children in. Fill up on roundies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of pizza and more at Oak Fire Pizzeria & Pub on North La Cienega Boulevard.
Oak Fire serves fresh takes on crust-bound favorites in a laid-back bar and eatery. Stop in for a lunchtime bite such as the chef's special pulled-pork sandwich, coated in a citrus-onion marinade and piled on freshly baked bread ($9). Dinnertime diners can whet appetites and prep palates with starters such as the Jack Daniel's barbecue meatballs lounging by a kiddie pool of dunkable Dijon ($8) before moving on to zesty 'za entrees. Chicago–style deep-dish pies recall a time when mobsters used pizzas for bulletproof vests, or you can sample specialty slices from the toastily tasty confines of the walnut and mesquite wood-burning oven. The cracked-egg pizza tickles taste buds with toppings of prosciutto, fennel sausage, and fontina cheese, all crowned with rise-and-shineable sunny-side up eggs ($16), while thoughtful options like the vegan soy offer soy cheese and soy sausage ($15). A selection of microbrews and wines by the glass are also available.
Oak Fire's casual atmosphere and warmly textured stone walls invite leisurely conversation and relaxed fighting over the last slice. Settle into a spacious leather booth by a flat-screen TV broadcasting classic, weeklong chess tournaments or pull up a chair on the covered patio. The restaurant's open layout gives clear views of cooking action, letting guests envision themselves befriending the cooks on various social-media outlets.
- I have never in my life or in my unborn days EVER tasted better pizza. There is no better thin crust. There is no better tasting sauce. Thankyou. That is all. – Patricia W., Yelp
- The stone fire pizza is some of the best pizza I have ever eaten. Traditional and non traditional toppings keep the menu interesting without being overwhelming. – Mary C., Yelp
