Delancey on Sunset
My wife and I had a great meal at a place in Hollywood called Delancey. We have been driving past it on Sunset for a while and had always said we should check it out and today we did. The food was excellent. They had a wide assortment of pizzas and other Italian dishes.
We split a chicken panini and what they call a “Prospect” pizza w/ smoked mozzarella, fontina, parmesan and pecorino cheeses. We enjoyed both very much. The pizza crust was very light and tender and the cheeses were superb. The panini was tasty and came with a simple side salad with balsamic vinaigrette, equally tasty. Everything seemed very fresh. The prices were reasonable.
We plan on going back. They advertise “House Made” pasta that I’m very interested in trying as well as many of the other kinds of pizzas. They also have a large beer and wine selection that will be explored at a later date. The service was great and the atmosphere was nice and low key.
So, if you are in Hollywood and looking for a good meal, I would highly recommend Delancey.

This is a great little neighborhood spot. Really casual with good food. It's what I always wanted Buca to be but never was and now probably never will be.
If you like this place, you might also consider the Mercantile and District, both of which are also owned by George Abou-Daoud with Kris Morningstar developing the menus. The Mercantile is especially amazing if you're looking for a neighborhood brunch spot (great bloody marys, maple glazed pork belly over grits and ginger snap pancakes!). I have only been to District once, but the duck fat yorkshire pudding and the beef deckle were pretty fantastic.
