That Thickness At Square Pie

I had some glorius pork belly at Cochon and was sad to see it go, but the same owners re- opened a new concept in its place- with lunch hours! The menu is small, just a handful of sides, pizzas, pastas, and sides.

The namesake square pies come medium or large. I was lunching with a group and we shared a large Melanzane: with mashed roasted eggplant,  punchy olives, mounds of ricotta, and a thin layer of tomato sauce ($18). The foccacia like crust might be the thickest I have had in Philly. It makes the slices extremely filling, though the dough is not dense. And while it appeared burnt, it didn’t taste like it.  I was into all of it, the combo of toppings and the crust. I will be back, and I will be trying the pork belly pie.
