There are big TVs over the long bar and a late-night flatbread and burgers menu. But it’s more than a straightforward neighborhood bar: The dining room is stylish, the service staff snappy and with it. But the real proof of greater culinary aims is stuff like this: they make their own mozzarella every day. Sample it on a crisp-crusted pizza margherita or as a super generous tomato and mozzarella appetizer with tasty Ugly Ripe tomatoes, drizzles of good olive oil and that sweet balsamic reduction. Dishes are hearty but sophisticated, case in point a white pizza topped with chicken, bacon and more of that housemade mozzarella.
