One of life's truths: For every bad experience an EOW writer has at a restaurant, someone else has a good one, and vice versa. Katharine Shilcutt didn't enjoy dinner last night at the new Tasting Room, but commenter Rebecca Hadley had a great time last week:
You went too fancy, Shilcutt! I think Neapolitan-style pizza is at its best when it's simple. The husband and I checked this place out a week-and-a-half ago (you can't keep me away from the promise of good pizza). I had some lovely icy prosecco and we each had a margherita pizza. I thought it was fantastic - made me long for the NY slices of my youth. I know we all have different tastes, but I certainly thought it was worth the drive from the Heights, and plan to go again soon. Cheers!
Cheers, indeed. See all y'all at Menu of Menus!
