The grand reopening of Polito's Pizzeria was tonight, and of course I had to go.
The new restaurant definitely had a more spacious, open feel, and it was louder and colder than their other place. I mention the cold because I'm uber susceptible to cold and restaurants that are always cold.
We ordered a 'large thin works', with black olives, garlic, green peppers, mushrooms, and sausage.
The crust looked and felt more chewy and a slight bit doughy underneath the toppings than what I remembered. It had a rather crispy, buttery taste to it.
I always thought the underside looked rather distinct, slightly charred and it looked like there were dots.
The sauce seemed different, too, but I can't exactly say what's missing. I'm figuring it'll take a while to get back to where they were, especially if the dough was made using an 'old dough' method, which I don't know at all if they do. The atmosphere was upbeat and everyone seemed 'alive'.
I'll be back!
