Pizzeria 312 Simi Valley Opened February 22

After several months of renovations, Pizzeria 312 opened at at 3921 Cochran Street in Simi Valley on February 22nd in the former location of a Lamppost Pizza.

According to its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Pizzeria312, Pizzeria 312 is a Chicago Style Pizzeria specializing in premium pizza and pasta, using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients.

The restaurant also carries a variety of craft beers, an extensive wine list and 14 big screen TVs.

I like their Meatball Sandwich description on their website at www.pizzeria312.com: Three homemade meatballs jammed into a French roll baked with marinara and melted mozzarella.  (Makes me hungry for one!)

Chicago-style pizza = deep dish pizza. What is the significance of 312? My suspicion is that they selected this name as it just so happens to be the area code for the downtown Chicago area.
