The pilsener was superb. Crisp and perfect with pizza. I'm not familiar with Golden Pheasant.

How was it?

Pequod's is probably my Most Disappointing Pizza experience. I went in expecting great, waited 2 hours, what we got was not as good as Pizza Hut.

Pepe #1a, Sally's #1b. Modern #2.

If totally jammed you can walk into Zuppardi's in West Haven as a solid #3. Pay money for fresh shucked if you go for clam pie.

Oops I missed this. I thought it was pretty damn good but not like a life changing pizza or anything. We got sausage, peppers, and black olives. It was definitely a bit of a soupy mess but the crust turned out great.

For me the food highlight in Chicago so far has been the italian beef sandwiches. Would have to give the slight edge to Portillo's but I went to Johnnie's last night and it was also fantastic. BIG fan of the spicy giardiniera.

You can't go wrong at Crust or EVO but EVO was genuinely amazing.

Plan ahead a month and get a reservation at R Kitchen. 2 chefs, 16 patrons, 5 courses. A steal at $35 prix fixe. Wine for $8 a glass or $30/bottle. Easily one of the best and most memorable dining experiences of my life.

Porta on Chestnut St is the 3rd location of this Italian Restaurant / Pizzeria - the original is in the former location of The Student Prince in Asbury Park, where Bruce met Clarence.

The Philly location is a huge two-story former furniture store, the biggest pizzeria in Philly.

The Neapolitan pizzas there are excellent, if not quite as magical as Capofitto or Vetri.

BIGA Pizza & Beer in Bryn Mawr is a great spot for Neapolitan pizza. Tried four different ones last night, every one was a winner.

The crust is excellent, typical puffy charred cooks-in-90-seconds stuff. Not better than Vetri or Capofitto but a pretty ideal vehicle for the toppings.

The red sauce is vibrant, the specialty pizzas are especially well chosen and balanced in flavors and textures.

On bad pizza, you sprinkle on grated cheese, oregano, garlic powder, pepper flakes, etc to get some flavor.

On good pizza I sprinkle on salt because well salt makes everything better.

On great pizza - like this - there is no need to enhance. On a Wednesday night, no waiting for a table, either. Happy Hour drink prices until 6pm.

I went there for the first time a few weeks ago and agree that it was quite good. Will definitely go back.
