How I heard of this place: Walking by on the way to Peet’s to grab a mango tea freddo, we walked by a sign in the window saying “Pizza by the slice” and my friend could not be asuaged.
Type of cuisine: Pizza and salad, take out or dine in.
Ambiance: Simple, sleek, modern minimalism, stone walls and concrete pillars with black-painted ceilings covering up industrial pipes. Casual setting, where you order at the counter and your slice of pizza, salad and drink are offered to you before you take your seat.
What I ordered: I ordered one slice (very large) of New York style pepperoni pizza ($4). My dining companion ordered one slice of pepperoni and one slice of cheese pizza.
What I loved: Having only sampled the pepperoni, I did love the light spiciness of the pepperoni on the perfect amount of cheese – not so much that it follows you with no end as you take a bite; not so little that you can see the sauce and bread beneath. The pizza was just oily enough that it did not dribble down your arm as you lifted the large slice, but just enough to satisfy any fat or grease craving that one may have.
Why I loved it: I loved that the pizza – the look, the flavor, the thin-ness – reminded me of the Cicchitti’s pizzas we grew up with in Bellingham.
Cost: Average ($4 per huge slice of pizza)
