Following the opening of Summer House Santa Monica three weeks ago, Jeff Mahin and Lettuce Entertain You are unveiling the sister spot, Stella Barra Pizzeria, today. Enter both restaurants through one door and turn right to get to Stella Barra. The space is more open and industrial then Summer House with the exception of a bright white foyer. Charcoal walls and ceilings are fitted with exposed ducts and pipes. Four-top tables and booths make way to a communal table and open kitchen, followed by a rectangular bar and counter seats under black exposed brick.
Mahin's menu focuses on California-style pizza, accented with vegetable and meat sides, meatballs, two pastas, and salads. A tidy wine and craft beer list, and seven cocktails (two draft) comprise the booze choices. Read the full menu and see the whole space below.
