800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen closed its Westwood location Monday.
800 Degrees, a Neapolitan pizza and rotisserie chicken restaurant chain, closed after six years in Westwood. A new Italian restaurant will be opened in 800 Degrees’ former location in December, said Andrew Thomas, executive director of the Westwood Village Improvement Association.
The chain launched in Westwood in 2012 as 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria. It changed its name to 800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen in February and updated its menu to include rotisserie chicken and other woodfired foods. 800 Degrees has four other locations in Los Angeles, with several other restaurants in Las Vegas, New York, Tokyo, Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, and Doha, Qatar.
800 Degrees was one of more than a dozen pizza restaurants in Westwood, including Lamonica’s New York Pizza, Enzo’s Pizzeria and Italian Express.
Representatives from 800 Degrees did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
