Pizza Art Cafe
Last Friday John and I visited Pizza Art Cafe, a delicious pizza spot in our neighborhood. We first visited this little spot a year ago, and we were one of two couples dining at the time. The food was so delicious that we were a bit worried that the place wouldn't survive. Well, we didn't need to worry. When we walked in shortly before 7 p.m., the place was packed and booked with reservations for the rest of the night. The only seating option was at a shared table with another couple. We were hungry, so we didn't mind sharing space if that meant pizza for us (plus it was too cold to walk to our other fave pizza spot, I Monelli). Oddly enough, Pizza Art is owned by a Bosnian family, but the pizza tastes just like the pizza that we enjoyed too much during our semester abroad in Italy. I had an amazing salame (basically pepperoni) pizza, and John had this calzone-ish thing with smoked beef inside of it. I thought his was a little gross - sort of a brisket pizza pocket - but he liked it. Another good thing about this place: it's BYOB with no corkage fee! Unfortunately, we did not come armed with wine, but we will have to remember it for next time. That, and to make a reservation.
