Our Man Sietsema Digs Motorino
This week, Our Man Sietsema is at Motorino, which he praises for being more affordable and less pretentious than other pizza temples.
Though inspired by Naples pizza, Motorino's pies are cooked in a wood-burning oven that dominates the room (making the premises especially cozy in cold weather). Stippled with char, smoky, and slightly doughy, the marguerita ($10) stands up to any other I've tasted.
