Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Clam pie
$$, Outdoor Seating, Pizza, Full Bar, University South
"I love all of the pizzas but this one is my favorite by far. I add anchovies because I love the extra saltiness it adds. Of course, you have to add the dried chili flakes and oregano they give you on the side. I love to drink a glass of Verdicchio or a Mio Mao cocktail to pair with this pie."
Chilled tripe "Tripperia style"
$$, Outdoor Seating, Pizza, Full Bar, University South
"This tender, chilled tripe is dressed with lemon and good olive oil—then sprinkled with sea salt and parsley. It’s so refreshing and packs a whole lot of flavor while being really balanced. Add some of the home-made chili oil to get even more kick out of it."
