Sorry for the hyperbolic thread title, but this thread deserves your attention (imho, of course!).
Like most of the upscale pizza places, Co. has been somewhat controversial on this board. It has many fans, but many others question the hype. My gf and I have been fans since it opened, with my gf declaring their "birds nest" pizza -- shaved asparagus and quail eggs -- to be the best pizza she's ever eaten. (The birds nest is not currently on the menu.)
After not eating there for some time, we decided to hit Co. last night, and had our best Co. meal ever. We shared the radicchio salad -- a wonderfully simple salad of radicchio. sliced mushrooms and silky mozzarella in a balsamic vinaigrette -- and their current special pizza, which they call a "charcuterie pizza": sauerkraut, bechamel, three kinds of cheeses, three kinds of German sausage, and dijon mustard. This pizza was extraordinary -- a cross between the best pizza I've ever had and the best hot dog I've ever had. (Ignore that last reference if it's too lowbrow for you, but it certainly had the elements of a great hot dog!)
Even if you're not a Co. fan, if this pizza sounds at all appealing to you, I urge you to head over and give it a try.
