What a treat and so close to home!
A great new restaurant from the Besh Restaurant Group recently opened Uptown within walking distance from the house, and the buzz is fierce.
We finally tried it out a couple weeks ago and loved it so much.
Upon entering the restaurant, you pick up a menu and order prior to being seated. You can choose to sit in the bar or a one of the numerous tables in the expansive dining area.
J & I ordered a couple cocktails and the much recommended grilled cauliflower, an entire head of cauliflower grilled to perfection with whipped goat feta . I cannot tell you how good it was. I savored each and every bite. It was so large that we took much of it home. At $18.00, it’s not cheap but worth every bite.
We also ordered the prosciutto pizza…tomato, fresh mozzarella & arugula.
Pizza Domenica is a more casual spin-off of Chef Alon Shaya's wildly popular Domenica Restaurant at the Roosevelt. Wood-fired pizzas, small Italian plates, and salads with emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients are offered at Pizza Domenica.
American and local craft beers, specialty Italian brews, Italian influenced craft cocktails, small production boutique wines, and specialty house cocktails are offered at the bar.
I definitely recommend trying Pizza Domenica. I do not think you will be disappointed.
SEVEN to geaux!
