You’ll notice two bars. One is the bar where they’ll pour regional beers, handcrafted cocktails or your selection of wine from the glass encased wine rack. And to the right of that bar is the pizza bar with seating that overlooks the wood-fired oven where a chef prepares your very own pizza before your eyes. Eat and drink at either one and look up to enjoy the games on the big-screen televisions.
Both bars offer happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, with specially priced drinks, appetizers and pizzas nearly half off the menu pricing.
My first impression was remarkable – the food quality, presentation and taste exceptional. The atmosphere was fresh, sleek and felt like home. Most importantly, the servers provided an amazing culture of five-star service during my visits. This place is a keeper. Perhaps they’ll add my fourth letter B. For B. Different.
