Last night, former Osteria La Buca chef and recent Cochon 555 stunner Jason Neroni, a veteran of such New York establishments as 71 Clinton Fresh Food and 10 Downing Street, launched the first of two pop-up nights at Pitfire Pizza on Fairfax to offer a sneak peak into Superba Snack Bar, Neroni's forthcoming concept that's currently just a shell on Venice's propitious Rose Ave. Teamed with Pitfire Pizza co-owner Paul Hibler, Neroni plans to continue making whatever he can from scratch, including his own ricotta and rye pasta, in muscled-up Italian courses like crisp pizza with rich ramp and bone marrow puree, handheld porchetta sandwiches busting at the seams with pork brined for a full day, and chicken liver mousse spread atop Langer's rye with balsamic cherries and celery pickle. Come take a look at what Neroni is planning at Superba in our slideshow recap of his PItfire pop-up, which will recur this evening at the Fairfax location.
