press_dailyfind-520x260MyDailyFind.com – May 8, 2012 – By Karen Young  Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill is opening tomorrow, May 10, in Studio City at Laurel Canyon and Ventura Blvd in the old Louise’s location on the second floor of the corner strip mall that also houses the Daily Grill , Loteria Grill and Total Woman Gym (working out and eating out has never been easier!). The restaurant has been busy this week offering the community free lunches as a “welcome to neighborhood” hello.  This is the 18th location for the San Diego based restaurant that also has locations in Nevada, Palm Desert and El Segundo. According to owner  Sami Ladeki all the locations look different based on where they are located. The 818 location has a mod, urban feel with warm colors and accomodates approximately 140 people, including patio seating. In addition to three types of pizza cooked in a woodfired stone oven (in an open kitchen), Sammy’s menu reads  like a palate pleasing fusion of offerings, including  a wide range of tapas, grilled and sauteed items, entrees and more — at very moderate prices. The recipes are globally inspired with a good choice of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.  There’s also a bar area, as well as waiting area for take-out. Free parking. 12050 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, (818) 762-3330
