Jason Neroni has quickly become one of my favorite Los Angeles chefs. I first met him last year while covering Osteria la Buca for Slice. As much as I liked his pizza, his perfectly pulled and dressed pastas consistently blew me away.
Jason came to Los Angeles after notable stints at in New York, including 10 Downing Street, bringing his brazen cooking style to the west coast. Paul Hibler, a man I've also had the fortune of dining with a few times at Pitfire Pizza, was also taken with Jason, and after a happenstance meeting, Paul recruited Jason to American Gonzo Food Corp: an incubator for artisan food concepts.
Their flagship "Post Modern Pastaria," also known as Superba Snack Bar, tells of great innovation to come. We hung out with the guys and nibbled our way through the menu.
