The pizza is New York crispy thin, but that's it. Everything else is totally Abbot's style. There's a bagel crust of your choosing, and then they have a set combo of toppings for your pie. The BBQ chicken is really the best BBQ out there (forget CPK), and the five onion is a personal favorite for all you onion lovers out there. There's a handful of others with creative names like "Bianca" and "Popeye's." If you're a little more of a control freak, you can order the exact topping you want . . . and no questions asked. The mixed fresh salad is a good side with the pizza. If you're single, Abbot's has a pizza by the slice in New York-size slices . . . (big) . . . nothing "personal" about this pie.
Abbot Kinney, where this pizza joint is located, has a mini New York "East Village" vibe, which includes the current gentrfication. But it's a great way to have a quick bite, step out onto the sidewalk, and people-watch. There are benches on the sidewalk in front of the neighboring coffee shop, and there are ledges in front of neighboring stores.
