Masa-Echo Park Bakery & Cafe
The owners have put so much love into this restaurant that the "comfort style bistro food" is almost too comforting...and just a little fattening. They've combined the flavors of Italy, France, Spain, Cuba and the Midwest to make the menu overwhelmingly satisfying, all at a reasonable price. Some of the local favorites include any of the Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas, which practically burst with tomatoes, and the Manchego salad with granny smith apples, Manchego cheese, and a drizzled-on-top balsamic reduction. The food generally takes a long time to make its way from the kitchen to diners' tables, but the place makes up for it with its overtly attentive and friendly staff. To top it all off, they bake their bread fresh and from scratch...daily! - Michelle Campagna
I give their food a C! Not good, overpowering herbs! The iced tea was delicious! Their Desserts were to die for! But their meals not so much. We went once for breakfast, weren't thrilled, but were willing to give it another try. We went a second time for lunch/linner (4:00 p.m.) and again, were dissapointed. The drinks and desserts again, were delicious. sad to say, looks like a wonderful place to relax in.
Food Network got me craving a Chicago style pizza. Was lucky enough to find Masa on-line. I took a shot and turned into a big surprise. Great Pizza! Parking is a problem but well worth it. Remember to call in your order, takes about an hour for your pizza.
I went here based on a friends referral. We walked to what felt like my Grandmothers house, cozy and warm. The place was packed with 'loyal' customers, which told us we were in for good eating.
I had the Spicy Blackened Chicken Penne. My friends had the Homemade Gnocchi, the Penne Fresca, and the risotto appetizer.
By far on of the best homemade meals Ive had in a while.
