Style and substance. It’s the highly coveted pairing that eludes the masses. Endless swipes on dating apps have proved fruitless. Conscientious visits to our favorite online shops turn up scant results. And the drool-inducing food pics we scroll through on our timeline often don’t live up to the hype in terms of overall quality and taste. But once found, style and substance in tandem make for a memorable anything.
Recognizing this conundrum, V DTLA is a new restaurant in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles’ Jewelry District (fitting, really) that somehow cracks the code and infiltrates the matrix of what looks, tastes, and feels good.
A prime example of V DTLA living up to style and substance is their lineup of pizzas. Here they’re serving up Genovese-style pizzas that are cooked in a custom-built Italian oven in less time than your average Billboard chart-topper. The results are signature offerings that include delectable toppings like, roasted golden beets, fresh basil, rich mozzarella, unctuous balsamic glaze, and savory pepperoni. But wait until they’re served to you in what may very well be the most stylish and chic pizza boxes ever created.
Picture the scene of a piping hot, fresh out the oven pizza served up in a box that’s equal parts elegant Fashion Week invitation and modern, black & gold Vogue cover centerfold. Slide out that warm pie and take in the swank and dapper surroundings that creates a sophisticated vibe within an approachable setting. Neiman Marcus could never.
