SILVER LAKE — Purgatory Pizza of Boyle Heights is expanding west, opening a second outlet in the former Madam Matisse restaurant in a row of Sunset Boulevard storefronts where other changes are in the works.
Workers are in the process of transforming the former Madame Matisse, which closed last fall after more than a decade at the corner of Sunset and Maltman Avenue, into Purgatory Pizza at The Junction. In addition to pizza, the Silver Lake outpost of Purgatory Pizza, which is scheduled to open in a few weeks, will also sell pasta, salads and sandwiches as part of an expanded menu, according to a person familiar with the details.
There are other changes in store in the adjacent brick storefronts. In between the future Purgatory Pizza and the long-standing Millie’s Cafe, a new skateboard and menswear shop is currently under construction.
