Perfect downtown pizza (2008)
Debuting way downtown on barricaded Stone Street, where outdoor dining is a most pleasant pastime, and counting among its genetic forebears Forest Hills' Nick's Pizza, Adrienne's Pizza Bar bridges the gap between fine pizza parlor and wine bar. Its regular pizza is dubbed "nonna" (grandma), and denotes a square slice with a crust slightly more substantial than a Neapolitan pie. The list of potential toppings is long, and the quality of the mozzarella is high. Also available are other baked options, mainly in an Italian American vein: stuffed artichokes, eggplant parmesan, manicotti, and baked ravioli.
