Kind of funny how no one noticed after almost two years in the making. When hubby passed by last night there were two tables occupied.
It looks nice inside but very dark...its strange that they didn't put any lights on the outside. I was right outside before I noticed it was open.
Mmm, Juicy Penis...
HOLY CRAP!!! Anybody gone, yet??
There was an improptu review on brownstoner. Sounds like Toby's is going to have a run for its money.
I went. Service was very friendly. Pizza was very Lucali-style (or at least what I remember of it; was about 3 years since I've had it). Thin crust (not crackery, just right) with not much puff at the outside end but rather a solid 1.5 flat-ish inches, chewy, enough salt to have flavor on its own. Good char on bottom; juuust close to being too much char without being too much char. Acidic and bright sauce. Appropriate amount of cheese, though I'd maybe have liked a bit more bufala (love those gooey melty mounds - can't get enough). Fresh basil on top. $20 pie, extra $3 for most toppings, $6 for the special (artichoke). Bottles of house red and white (pinot noir and grigio iirc) for $15, other bottles $25ish.
Went mid-week at around 8:30 and there was a wait. Friendly waitress took my number and called me when a table was available. I appreciated this as I'd much rather wait in a cozy bar than in their spot staring at others eating!
SO SO SO GOOD!! Two insanely good restaurants in the hood now (Lot 2 would be the other one). Pretty sweet.
