PHEONIX — Pizzeria Bianco, a Phoenix staple founded by award-winning chef Chris Bianco, is expanding to Downtown Los Angeles with an estimated opening in May, according to Eater.
The L.A. location is set to closely replicate the Downtown Phoenix store, which includes pizzas, salads, sandwiches and small plates on the menu.
There are two Pizzeria Bianco locations in the Valley along with a Pane Bianco and Bar Bianco.
The Downtown Phoenix location at 623 E. Adams Street is the original restaurant.
Bianco started the pizzeria out of a grocery store in 1988. He later won the James Beard Award for Best Chef Southwest in 2003.
He has since become renowned beyond the Valley for his craft, even appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live to make pizzas multiple times.
