Chow-worthy place around Universal?
One of the most kid-friendly places in the vicinity is Caioti Pizza on Tujunga Ave. in Studio, the restaurant of the late Ed LaDou, inventor of the California pizza. IMHO the best pizza in L.A. (okay, I haven't been to Mozza yet.)
You have LaDou to thank if you've ever had barbecued chicken on a pizza. He was the original pizza chef at Spago (wher Wolfgand Puck still takes cedit for LaDou's recipes), then he designed the original menu for California Pizza Kitchen. Caioti was his first restaurant, initially famous for the bizarre urban legend that his salad dressing induced labor in pregnant women ... ;/
Split a lamb sausage and a barbecued chicken pizza, have a plain cheese for the young'uns and you'll be in heaven.
