Guest Chef Series at Eataly L.A.

Guest Chef Series at Eataly L.A.

Since our humble beginnings in Torino, Eataly has always been all about bringing people together with high-quality food. In Los Angeles and across the U.S., we keep this alive by working closely with local and Italian producers who share our passion and dedication for food that is good, clean, and fair.

After one year in Los Angeles, we've learned that you (just like us) love pizza and pasta! Throughout 2019, we’ll be hosting renowned L.A. chefs at La Pizza & La Pasta during the Guest Chef Series. While pizza and pasta are just the tip of the Italian culinary iceberg, there is a reason these two staples are the most beloved exports from Italy. Our Guest Chef Series celebrates just that.

Each guest chef will be tasked to conceptualize a pizza or pasta dish that reflects their culinary identity and highlights the producers we work with here at Eataly L.A. Their dish will be offered on the La Pizza & La Pasta menu, as a special, for one night only. Guests will have the chance to watch the chef in action and interact with him or her, as they prepare their special in the restaurant.


The next Guest Chef Series at La Pizza & La Pasta will take place on Thursday, September 19 during dinner service with Jason Winters, Chef and Owner of Urban Pie. Since 2012, Urban Pie has been making some of the best sourdough pizza in Southern California, and with three Italian wood-burning oven trailers, you can find their pies popping up all over town!

From 6-9 p.m., guest will have the chance to enjoy a signature pizza from Chef Jason and the Urban Pie team.

This series will take place for all of 2019 and to keep you on the edge of your seat, we will announce each hand-selected guest chef monthly. 

Our work with the local community doesn’t stop with food. Los Angeles has become our home and we’re striving to be an active part of this amazing community. With this thought in mind we decided to devote a portion of the proceeds to the LAFD Foundation, which is constantly involved with and supports the LAFD in protecting life, property, and the environment by providing essential equipment, training, and public outreach programs to supplement city resources.



At 18 years old Jason moved to the culinary mecca of Las Vegas where he worked for two James Beard award-winning chefs, Julian Serrano and Alessandro Stratta. The two restaurants received 5-star ratings by the Mobile Travel Guide. Jason left Sin City to return home to sunny Southern California where he opened “Studio at the Montage Resort” under James Boyce which also received a 5-star rating. Jason then spent over three years under his mentor Chef Suzanne Goin at Lucques, moving up the ranks to Sous Chef. Suzanne recognized his talent and asked him to help open her new restaurant in Brentwood Tavern.

In 2012 he decided to leave his Chef position for a leap of faith. With one wood-burning oven and a pregnant wife of 6 months, he launched Urban Pie. Now Jason tows around 3 ovens with his team, also operates a middle eastern-inspired events and pop up spot with Hearth & Olive, Is working on a slice shop in the Wilmore District in Downtown Long Beach as well as a pizzeria in Virgil Village in East Hollywood.

What makes Urban Pie special is its 4 to 5 day naturally leavened sourdough pizza. Using local blends of grains from Oregon, Washington and California.

Stay tuned for the next guest chef coming to our restaurant!
