500 E 1st Street

The 4th Horseman

121 W. Fourth St.

Long Beach, CA 90802

 

Bringing the aesthetic of horrorcore mixed with high-brow-to-low-brow offerings, The 4th Horseman is a craft beer and wine bar with an apocalyptic pizza kitchen. Voted Best Pizza in Long Beach 2019, not only did this relative newcomer score as the best restaurant in Downtown, it nudged out plenty of fair competition in this category—and for good reason! Chef Adam Schmalz’s style is wonderfully distinct – not Neapolitan-style, not New York-style. His pizzas are odes to the Californian culture of fusion – a chewy, not-too-thick-not-too-thin crust that comes with an abundance of options.
