We stopped after a long day at the zoo. It’s a cool place with a chill vibe and really tasty pizza. We got a small base pie with Gorgonzola and 1/2 pepperoni and we loved it!

I am a pizza snob (4 Italian grandparents), worked in Italy, grew up in NY metropolitan area, etc. I am forever on a quest to find the pizza of my childhood. The pizza from Basic is close. It is all about the crust! Burnt edges...More
