Serving modern, California-tinged Italian fare from 8am until the early hours of the morning, Gesso is the kind of place where you can expect a blistered-crust pizza and wood-roasted radishes well into the night, every night. The cuisine is what chef Doug Miriello—formerly of the Gjelina Group—refers to as elevated, approachable and comfortable, and just as inspired by his Italian-Jewish roots as L.A.'s farmers' markets and seasonality. Find breakfast, an all-day menu and dinner service on weekdays, with brunch and dinner on weekends. Don't skip the adorable walk-up coffee shop and baked-goods corner, nor the full bar in the main dining room.

I was not blown away by Gesso, but my group and I did enjoy our meal here and left happy. It was a bit more expensive than I expected, but the pizzas, burgers, and drinks that we got all hit the spot. Not a place I expect to frequent regularly, but a nice choice for a casual but nice meal with a small group of friends.
