It's no secret that I love pizza and Speedy Romeo can really hang with the best of them. I love the crispy, sometimes chard crust, the texture, and of course the ingredients! Perfect topping to cheese ratio, and the inventive combinations pair well with their ice cold craft beers. What's also awesome is the pizza oven itself, which is decorated like Van Halen's guitar. Pro tip - their cheeseburger is also awesome, if you want to put your hands on more than just the perfect slice.
Babu - Ji might be one of my favorite new finds of 2016. The tasting menu is not only awesome, but very reasonably priced at $60 per person for a ton of food, and a pretty good sampling of the menu. Standout favorites for me were the lamb, the prawn curry, the street food snacks, and the self-serve beer fridge, stocked with craft beers as well as interesting imports from around the world.
