A few weekends ago I traveled into the city for a little day break. I picked up some new candles at Bath and Body Works, got some fresh donuts, scored a ton of fresh fruit and vegetables for $8, and caught a movie. It was amazing, a much needed break from my daily routine. Earlier that day, I also tried a new [to me] restaurant.
I've never been a huge fan of sausage pizza, but something told me to give it a try and I'm definitely glad I did. Compared to the heavy chunks of greasy meat I've had before, the crumbled sausage on "The Joey" was perfect, and the chili flakes gave it a nice kick. The ingredients were all very fresh, and the service was quick. Next time I visit I want to try "The Polpettini" (with ricotta stuffed veal sausage) and "The Diavolo" (with sopressata, a salami).
Margherita (Mozzarella, Crushed Tomato, Basil)
The Joey (Berkshire Pork Sausage, Mozzarella, Crushed Tomato, Spinach,
Garlic, Chili Flakes, Provolone)
The gentlemen next to us ordered the most delicious looking meat tray and pizza overflowing with greens. I don't know exactly what's hidden beneath that forest, but it looked amazing.
Interested in visiting Zavino? Check out more of their menu and location information here. And as if you needed more convincing, there's a gelato shop across the street. Do it.
What's your favorite pizza (or any) restaurant? I don't know exactly where or when, but I see travel in my future, and I'd love to keep your city picks on file!
Have a great week!
