“Memorable food, intelligent wine lists”
Los Angeles, February 4, 2013 –The year 2013 will begin deliciously- at least for Angelenos- with the opening of chi SPACCA, Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali, and Joe Bastianich’s new meat-focused eatery with a unique Italian twist. chi SPACCA, which translates to “to chop,” is a departure from B&BHG’s other California eateries. Sandwiched between Osteria Mozza and Mozza2Go, the dark-toned, warmly lit space seats 30. Dining at chi SPACCA—surrounded by shelves of wine and a lively open kitchen—is like being a guest in an Italian home, with great company and magnificent food. chi SPACCA’s meat-driven menu, executed by Executive Chef Chad Colby (formerly of Mozza’s Scuola di Pizza), highlights a menu of insalate, house-cured salumi like finocchiona, and contorni such as cauliflower alla piastra with crushed lemon bagna cauda. Beef and pork mains from the macelleria include Milk Roasted Double Pork Chop, Red Wattle Pork Segreto, and Bistecca alla Fiorentina. The dynamic wine list, created by Wine Director Taylor Parsons, features Italy’s most unique regional wines, with a special focus on meat-friendly reds from Piemonte, Umbria and the South. chi SPACCA maintains B&BHG’s commitment to sustainability. Through initiatives such as the no-bottled water policy, energy efficient lighting, and whole-animal purchasing, chi SPACCA strives to be energy efficient, conserve water, and reduce waste wherever possible. Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich are the distinctive forces behind an eclectic group of critically acclaimed, unanimously adored restaurants. Their roster includes Babbo Ristorante & Enoteca, Bar Jamón, Casa Mono, Del Posto, ESCA, Lupa Osteria Romana, Otto Enoteca & Pizzeria and Tarry Lodge in New York; B&B Ristorante, Carnevino, and Otto Enoteca & Pizzeria in Las Vegas; and Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza in Los Angeles in collaboration with Nancy Silverton. While each location offers its own culinary identity, all have the signature combination of thoughtful and memorable food, intelligent wine lists, and an emphasis on living life to its absolute fullest.
This intimate branch of the Osteria Mozza chain houses chef Chad Colby's magnum opus: meats grilled in an open kitchen, swoon-worthy vegetables and L.A.'s best charcuterie.
