6-Course Playful Italian Dinner Event
Situated next to the Groundlings Theatre in Melrose, just west of La Brea, Ronan is the highly personal creation of Executive Chef/Co-Owner Daniel Cutler, an L.A. native late of Sotto and Alimento, and his wife Caitlin, the restaurant’s manager. Pizza is what they are best known for, baked in a white dome oven that sports a figurine of Jesus, but not any old pizza. Consider, for instance, the pie known a Sweet Cheeks, which features house-cured guanciale, Apullian ricotta forte, and cacio e pepe honey. Beyond pizza, there are superb offerings like artichoke crostini, burrata, an extraordinary foglie salad of shaved fennel and cucumber vinaigrette, and a killer pork chop. Thrillist has named Ronan to its January 2020 list of “The Best Restaurants in Los Angeles Right Now” while The Infatuation heralds Ronan as “the most sneakily impressive restaurant in the city,” saying “at first glance, [it] is a neighborhood pizzeria…but its greatness will start to sneak up on you.” We will be taking over Ronan for this event, and Chef Cutler will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss his fabulous obsession with everything Italian.
