Passover is over and its time to carb up. I am incorporating something breadlike into every meal this week. Pizzeria Vetri opened its 2nd Philly location on Chancellor Street last summer. On my first visit to the original, Art Museum location, I liked the prosciutto slice of the day but was not overwhelmed with joy over the Margherita pie. The menu is the same at both locations (and the one in Austin, TX) and I returned to try a different carb pie.

Last month, Snap Custom Pizza opened in Rittenhouse. My first thoughts were- I hate this name! It is basically the same name as another casual mini chain down the street! But then I learned that all pizzas and salads come with as many toppings as you want!!! Imagine the cheesy possibilities.
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.

Unfortunately, I find myself assuming restaurants on Market Street in Old City are guilty (of being lame) before proven innocent. Something about the cheesiness of being ushered in along with a few underwhelming experiences. Silence Dogood opened on Market Street in April without much fanfare/press and I was of course, skeptical. The pub is also associated with the Big Red Pedal Tours- that bike powered roving bar that I have never known anyone to use. But while ordering a flew of flat breads for my group, I was told they make their own ricotta and my hope rose like dough.
I’m going to be real with you – I happened to be a bit day drunk when I stopped for lunch at La Rosa. I will do my best to recap, because I really enjoyed myself at this little pizza spot. La Rosa has been open for over 30 years and must have a real loyal customer base- the counter lady could tell we were new.
Pizzeria Vetri has been providing upscale Neapolitan style oven delicacies since the Fall of last year. I pregamed my Whole Foods trip with pizza. Sidenote: I love abbrevs as the next gal, but I beg everyone to never use ‘za as an abbreviation for pizza. It makes my skin crawl.
