Report - Pi Bar - Better than Arinell - but that doesn't say much

Checked out the new Pi Bar on Valencia last night on opening night.

As to be expected, they had a few opening-night service issues which I'm expecting will be resolved and they were doing their best to accomodate everyone.

Got a slice of regular cheese pizza for $3.14. It was OK, and definitely better than Arinell, but still just all right, nothing special. They claim to be doing California-ized NY-style pizza - i.e. same style, higher-quality ingredients, but this is still nowhere near as good as the "low-quality ingredients" NY-style pizza I've had in New York.

They do have a good beer selection though and good specials.

Ultimately though, I see this as more of a bar that also has some decent pizza, rather than a pizza place with beer.

Also went to Anthony's Cookies across the street and was disappointed with the banana cookie I got - but I was going at the end of the day when they were out of most of their popular flavors. Still....
