Citizen Pie. Like, it's opening today. It's directly across the street from the Beachland Ballroom, and it's delicious! Ferrett and I got a chance to preview the pizzas last week. Beautiful, simple, interesting ingredients, all cooked in a woodfired pizza oven that was shipped over from Italy--none of this "it looks like a wood oven, but it's actually fueled with gas" nonsense. I had the Caponata, and it was amazing--a brilliant selection of olives, matched by the surprise of currants as well as pine nuts. Every mouthful was a new surprise of flavor combinations. Ferrett went with the basics, a marinara. Made in true Italian style, not smothered in cheese, the fresh ingredients really shined through. So, Clevelanders! I have a tip for you. Paulius Nasvytis, the genius behind The Velvet Tango Room, has just opened a pizza parlor, |
The place is cozy, with limited seating, and the cooking is all done in an open kitchen. Go with an appetite; you want to eat this!
