Jon & Vinny’s - Wine & Spirits Magazine

Jon & Vinny’s

Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo of Animal fame run this bustling Italian pizzeria on Fairfax, offering bruschetta, antipasto, pasta and pizza in large quantities. Tucked away in the back is Helen’s, a wine shop the size of a closet, with an unexpectedly massive bottle selection, all of which is available in the restaurant, resulting in one of the most overachieving pizzeria wine programs in the country. Raveneau Les Clos with your “LA Woman” pie (burrata, basil, sliced tomatoes)? Sure, why not?

421 Fairfax Blvd., Los Angeles, California
