Updated Friday, August 25, 2017 at 4:43 p.m.: Chef Chris Bianco is firing up the oven in Los Angeles to bring his famous Pizzeria Bianco restaurant.

The Phoenix-based eatery filed plans with the city on Thursday to open a location at 911 N. Sycamore Avenue, just three blocks north of Melrose Avenue.

Plans call for the warehouse to be converted into a 6,245-square-foot restaurant, serving liquor, with seating for up to 112, according to planning documents. 

Bianco said he was interested in opening a Pizzeria Bianco location earlier this month, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

Despite what was filed with city planning, Bianco told The Real Deal that he has not signed a formal lease for the property at this time.

The James Beard award-winning chef has four Pizzeria Bianco locations in Arizona.

He recently partnered with husband-and-wife team Chad Robertson and Elisabeth Prueitt of San Francisco’s Tartine Bakery to open Tartine Manufactory at the Row DTLA. The massive concept will include an 8,200-square-foot bakery and mill, a 6,500-square-foot market and dining area, as well as a coffee roastery and dinner restaurant. The Tartine Manufactory is expected to open early 2018.

This story has been updated to add a comment from Chris Bianco and opening date for Tartine Manufactory.
