Cosi introduces “Authentic” Flatbread Pizzas, New York goes “huh?”
I have a soft spot in my heart for Cosi. The bread is just so damn good, and baked fresh right in the middle of the store. We can make jokes about chains all we want, but a sandwich on fresh, brick oven baked bread is good. I don’t care what anybody says. And if you put free pieces in a bowl at the front of your establishment, I’m going to show up.
Pizza? Now that’s a different story. I’m sure when Cosi decided to add Flatbread pizzas to their menu, New York was not the market they had in mind. Anybody who pays $7+ for a Cosi pizza, when there are great slices on every corner of the city, is just nuts. That being said, if you love Cosi bread, and the idea of having two pieces of it for lunch, topped with mozzarella cheese, and their (too sweet for me) marinara sauce- you just might be into it. Me? If I ever move to Oklahoma, I’ll be all over this. For now, I think I’ll stick with this or this or even this.
