Ten Best Restaurants in Hollywood
8. Mauro's Pizza
Mauro's doesn't stock the dry sawdust most pizza eaters know as a sad iteration of Parmesan cheese. In fact, it tells you it doesn't have it with a sign that also warns "DON'T ASK." There are also curt instructions on the use of oregano and dried chili flake dispensers: "POUR ON YOUR PLATE FIRST, THEN ON YOUR PIZZA." There are a lot of rules at Mauro's, but if you manage to follow them all correctly, what you'll get is an ooey-gooey slice of thin-crust, New York-style pizza good enough to settle even the most devout New Yorker's longing for home for the night.
7. PRL Euro Café
Once upon a time, beer was valued more for its nutritional qualities than its inebriating ones. The yeast that ferments grain starches into alcohol contains high levels of magnesium, selenium, potassium, phosphorous... oh who cares. At PRL Euro Café there's enough good-quality beer to make a meal and then some. Like it's neighbor Mauro's, the décor is four walls and nothing more. A few LPs are tacked to the walls, and last we heard, you can still smoke inside.
