Once again, I'm so lucky to live in Cleveland! [Nov. 24th, 2015|09:48 am]
So, Clevelanders! I have a tip for you. Paulius Nasvytis​, the genius behind The Velvet Tango Room​, has just opened a pizza parlor, 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.

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!

You know I was talking to one of the owners sons at a pizzeria on 33rd and 8th and I told them that I had pizza in Roma, and the dude was all " You hated it right ?" LOL.
Still that pizza looks interesting and I'd probably go after a concert or something. Now I'm curious to see how good it really is, because I liked my pizza experience in Roma.

I know! Everything in Italy was delicious. Except the cuttlefish. I'm glad that I tried it, but no thanks in the future.
