Chef Zach Pollack, of the critically acclaimed Silver Lake restaurant Alimento, is bringing his second concept to the East Side of Los Angeles with Cosa Buona, a restaurant that will celebrate Italian-American cuisine and the modern pizzeria. Housed inside the former Pizza Buona space which dates back to 1959, Cosa Buona continues to showcase Pollack’s inspired Italian dishes with an L.A. sensibility. Here, Pollack’s focus turns to expertly crafted antipasti, salads, and pizza, as well as a selection of both classic and playful interpretations of Italian sandwiches available for both lunch and takeout. Served in the restaurant’s convivial atmosphere, Pollack’s menu emphasizes the best versions of familiar favorites by using mindfully sourced ingredients from local artisans and growers complemented by a selection of natural wines from Italy and France.
