Louie Loves LA: Jon and Vinny’s

This is definitely the place to come when you want to eat as many carbs as possible. Especially if you want those carbs to be proceeded by one of our favorite salads in LA and followed by a real mean cup of soft serve. Jon and Vinny’s is lovely. While the wall of booths limits the seating a bit, the blonde wood filled space always feels inviting. It’s open all day everyday and is one of our fave breakfast spots too. Because pizza is even better for breakfast – obvs. They also make a lovely avocado toast, and A+ fried egg sandwich, supper fluffy pancakes and an egg topped polenta that is magic. But back to dinner. At dinner there are meatballs – you must get the meatballs. And also all of the pizzas and pastas. Our fave pizza is the White Lightening which is topped with mozzarella, ricotta, garlic, onion, oregano and pickled jalapeño. Runners up – the LA Woman and Ham & Yeezy. For the pasta we usually go with the carbonara or the fusilli which comes in an extra rich pink vodka sauce that sorta seems like it should be on the kids menu but is also just bomb. This is all after you order the Little Gem salad – there are breadcrumbs and chilies and you must get it. When you think you are too full and can’t possibly eat anything else, get some soft serve and cookies to share and congratulate yourself for ordering such a perfect meal. They do take out too and have a wine shop in the back so you can recreate this magic at home anytime.
