I've got Wood in Silverlake!
Updated: Aug 18, 2019
I've driven by Wood at least 2 dozen times. Its located on Sunset Boulevard Wood so it is hard to miss. I think it used to be a burger joint. So I thought maybe its an upscale burger joint now? Maybe wood charbroiled burgers? That is until I finally stopped to try it. Walking in, it blew my mind. As you walk into the front door you'll see a huge wood fired oven to the right. As you turn yourself around, you'll see beautiful white tables with wood tops already preset with dishes. As you walk onto the outdoor patio, there is plenty of shade and fun distressed wood tables. (Beware tho, you could get splinter if you're not careful.)
So, like I mentioned, there is a large WOOD fired oven. The majority of the menu is cooked in this. Which is great, you really get the smoke from the wood flames. And its a high heat, so you don't have to worry about your food being undercooked. I would however, let your server know if you're that one person who can't stand a chard edge. In an oven like this you're bound to get at least one corner slightly blackened. Oh and if you are that one person...shame on you!
The menu varies from small salads, charred broccoli, brussel sprouts to hand made wood fired pizzas to pastas to dry aged rib eyes.
Everything I tried was delicious. Especially the pizza and the meatball sandwich. The portions were large. I will definitely be back.
