It’s no Manhattan, but Eagle Rock is becoming quite the L.A. pizza mecca. Adding to the heavily congested half-mile strip of Colorado Boulevard—on which reside the renowned (if not a little controversial) Casa Bianca, Brownstone Pizzeria, Pizza Man, and a Domino’s—is the soon-to-open Corner Pizzeria.
The new guy has claimed a spot just one block west of Brownstone, and the sign’s already up. Owner Edvin Kadimyan hopes to have the doors open by mid-July, and aims to make the spot “more of a hangout place.” As for the pizza: he promises a Jumbo 28” pie, as well as “East Coast-style” thin crust, and a heartier Sicilian.
Considering his pizzeria will be just a Kalamata olive’s throw from Casa Bianca, Kadimyan is unfettered. “They have really good pizza. I think that since we’ll be aiming at a more organic food menu, yes, it’ll be challenging, but it’ll be great.” Whatever the cut of the Corner Pizzeria slice turns out to be, Eagle Rock residents are going to have one more pie to pick from soon enough.
